    " A classic. Definitely worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Madriz | 2/1/2014

    " An early and descriptive case of multiple personality disorder. Very interesting because of the historical moment when it was written "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Lester | 1/24/2014

    " The story of my life.... This edition features a fantastic introduction by Vladimir Nabokov--worth the price of admission in itself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zero Jones | 1/23/2014

    " This story has become so famous through adaptations, re-imagining etc, that you may think you already know it well. Let me recommend reading the original, the result of a master story teller dealing with subjects ahead of his time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Petersik | 1/13/2014

    " Good human nature vs. bad human nature. Or ego vs. id, if you prefer. Or perhaps it's frontal lobe vs. limbic system. Either way, this is the classic tale of being overcome by the darker side of one's human nature. "

    " If you like Victorian Lit then i recommend this book. I didn't like the story much but enough to keep me reading to the end. It's about man's struggle between good and evil. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kurara | 1/4/2014

    " 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). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oldnetnerd | 1/3/2014

    " Wow, kind of a creepy book. We each have both good and bad within us. Which one do we play with more, and how will playing on one side effect the other, or our ability to see the other side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rupertt Wind | 12/12/2013

    " A superb novel, stunningly original "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Meyer | 12/3/2013

    " A great novel that centers around the notion of good and evil and the notion of people having both good and evil inside them and their choice on which side to act upon "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noah Thompson | 12/14/2012

    " It was very cool! i love this book a lot! i read it all in 2 days. It was very creapy and strange. I think that robert did very good! i realy liked it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gokhan | 10/19/2012

    " "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" isn't a book concerning the fight between good and evil, but a book concerning why a man chooses to be good or evil; criticizing Victorian England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Brady | 5/17/2012

    " Pretty good book for such an old book. Very well written and you really feel for Dr Jekyll as the story progresses. Check it for the nostalgia if anything. "

    " Un clasico interesante para sus tiempos.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 11/16/2011

    " Who knew Louis Stevenson was such a dark dude? In my version I also have additional collected essays. "The Body-Snatcher" was super-dark. Can't wait to read "The Suicide Club." "

  • 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. "

    " 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 "
