Both a cracking tale of horror and deeply audacious account of the human psyche, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has continued to thrill and fascinate since it was first published in 1886. Dr. Jekyll wants to rid his soul of evil, and in doing so creates the monstrous alter ego Mr. Hyde. As time goes on he slides increasingly into this other side of his personality until it finally takes over, with disastrous consequences. As the determined Mr. Utterson races to uncover the secret of the good Dr. Jekyll's sinister new companion, the cozy Victorian world of wealth and comfort is discovered to be under siege.

    " Very good book, even if you know the plot. Great read for Halloween time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rena | 1/28/2014

    " This just seems like a really long short story. It was alright. The story is just really slow and a little hard to follow at some points. Maybe I just wasn't reading it carefully enough. Either way, I have read it, and life moves on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabrina | 1/26/2014

    " Quite a crazy story. I liked it because it was so bizarre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 12/19/2013

    " This is a really well-told tale, but unfortunately the awesome "aha" moment has already been spoiled by contemporary culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NaiNai | 12/14/2013

    " The original, in which the true identity of Mr. Hyde is unknown until the end of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel Neal | 12/13/2013

    " This book is a fabulous illustration of the duality of human nature and the evil that "hides" within us all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne Marrs | 11/27/2013

    " If you're in the mood for some good Victorian melodrama, you can't go wrong with Robert Louis Stevenson. I'd particulary recommend "Thrawn Janet" and "Markheim." Spooky! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lapo | 10/27/2013

    " Veramente qualcosa di incredibile. Lascia senza parole dalla prima all'ultima riga. Incredibilmente unico. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lula | 8/31/2013

    " A really great story about the desperation of a man of finding a cure for a really strange illness. This story can make you creep out a lot. It has an incredibly plot, and an incredible way of showing that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shell | 5/13/2013

    " Know and like the story but found the book hardgoing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mara Powell | 5/6/2013

    " Well, it probably would've been better had I not known that Dr. Jeckyl was Mr. Hyde. But how can someone hold in that spoiler for a century? People couldn't even hold in the Sixth Sense spoiler for a few months... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison Pizel | 12/22/2012

    " It's hard to follow this type of writing style. "

    " fast, short read - almost like a long, short story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cap Wafers | 4/20/2012

    " It's a fantastic book! The only problem is it's too short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie Knock | 2/6/2012

    " Before i read the book I thought I knew the story of Jekyll and Hyde... how wrong I was. It's fantastic and so much more than expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ericka | 11/13/2011

    " Read it as a part of an analytic reading course. Once we tore the book a part I LOVED it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christen Mamenko | 10/19/2011

    " It was okay... I think it was a bit of a disappointment because of already knowing the entire plot before hand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 arg/machine | 10/12/2011

    " Classic fantasy thriller. In the public domain, with a free electronic copy here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kurara | 9/25/2011

    " Not so fun when you know the story, but cool in a different way. Its, like, the first scary story I've ever really read(so its going in my favorites b/c i actually enjoyed it). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 8/9/2011

    " A brilliant inspiration. Horrible execution. A bit of advice to people; read this on a gloomy rainy day or if you like classics. Read if you fancy but everything went downhill in the last 2 chapters. You've been warned. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielroffle | 5/22/2011

    " "Dr.Jekyll" is cool but really guys, "The Merry Men" is the real shit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/16/2011

    " Even without the suspense as to the outcome, the book was an entertaining read. And, it's a classic! I have seen the play before and next time I'll have the full story in mind to make it richer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 5/16/2011

    " Lovely writing. Intricate, elegant phrasing that is so far removed from the blunt way we communicate in the modern world. Also an intriguing investigation of the desire to indulge in vice without consequence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daisyjess | 5/15/2011

    " Loved it. It drew me in from the first page and I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/10/2011

    " I loved this book!! It was brilliantly thought through and had a good meaning in the end . It made me cry!! :') "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/6/2011

    " The sotry is nothing like pop culture portrays. The monster is a small man, not a huge giant. I read it for the cultural experience. I wouldn't read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. Like all books that have become horror classics, the original is not scary or horrible. It is a much different story than Hollywood has made it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddy Kay :) | 5/2/2011

    " LOOOOOVEEDD it ;) like nothing I've ever read before! It was spectacular! lol "
