First published in 1886, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, is a psychological fable for our time. It draws on intuitive knowledge of the nasty complications of the human mind (which Shakespeare used so well in his tragedies). Here, Sir Laurence Olivier unfolds the story as precisely and pedantically as it was written. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason S. | 2/20/2014

    " More novella than novel, the pervasive idea of the duality of people in society is spread throughout the book, but the text itself (much like the science described - or not described, as the case may be) is vague, light, and dated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/16/2014

    " Good story and easy to read classic. The 1st part reads as a mystery while the latter part goes into the psychology of Dr. Jekyll's transformation and ultimate downfall. I enjoyed it and will be looking for my next "easy to read" classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie J K | 12/27/2013

    " A classic tale of good vs evil and the duality of human nature. Dr Jekyll, a respectable man, concots a potion to separate the good and evil characteristics within himself. The evil side becomes Mr Hyde, a character without morals or reputation, free to engage in evil behavior without moral consequence. Hyde's evil personality eventually takes over, and Jekyll becomes unable to separate himself from Hyde. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 12/12/2013

    " Good but a little short. I can't help but think that if written today they would've embellished a bit more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashton Barnes | 11/24/2013

    " A classic can't go wrong here! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Burnham | 11/21/2013

    " Scary. Atmospheric. Much shorter than I expected, and with much less detail to the story than modern interpretations would suggest, which makes it perfect for adapting and extrapolating upon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett Ashton | 10/16/2013

    " This is a good classic mystery/sci-fi read about the good and evil side of man. It was just a little bit difficult to follow at first but evolved quite nicely as it went. It's also a very short read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angel | 8/18/2013

    " Shows the deepest part of a human's emotions. Wonderfully dark book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 محمد عبادة | 7/16/2013

    " The first novel that I ever read in English .. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Cohen | 12/6/2012

    " I really enjoyed it-- engrossing and creative and a little creepy-- I actually wanted it to be longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 12/1/2012

    " I'm sorry, but I thought this book was simply stupid. But I'll try again with a closed mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Laduke | 9/7/2012

    " Can't belive I newvwer read this before. Trying to read some of the classics with my Kindle and this was one of them that I read. A classic story of the good vs evil battle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marc | 7/28/2012

    " Great classic horror novel. The use of the characters to talk about the duel nature of mankind is what makes it so resonant. Great book to read alongside "The Lucifer Effect." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Davidson | 1/26/2012

    " It was ok but didn't captivate me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi Griffel mancha | 11/15/2011

    " An interesting work of science fiction/horror. Made more interesting when you consider that it came on the tail of Darwinism. I personally saw some exploration of its implications in the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crizzle | 7/3/2011

    " Read this aloud with Spencer. Short, quick read... humorous for us to read about the scandalous crimes of the 1800's. Trampling a girl? Now it'd be kidnapping, rape and murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina Black | 6/3/2011

    " It would have been a lot better if you don't know the connection... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jbachelder | 5/24/2011

    " Gotta love these classic horror stories! Jekyl and Hyde is a short book, and even though we all know the story of how Dr. Jekyl drinks a potion and turns into his evil alter-ego Mr. Hyde, the telling of the story is creepy and the vocabulary is brilliant. "

  • 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 "
