Suppose you could travel the streets in a perfect disguise and commit any crime, indulge any vice, do whatever you wanted, to anyone you wanted, unburdened by guilt or remorse, and no one would ever know it was you. What would you do? Would you ever stop?

Would you still be yourself? Or can a creature without compassion, without self-restraint, without morals, still be called human at all?

Robert Louis Stevenson claimed that the basic story of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde came to him in a nightmare. As Stevenson told the story, the secret of the relationship between the respectable Henry Jekyll and the malevolent Edward Hyde was not revealed until the final chapter.

The biggest challenge we faced in adapting this classic was its fame: the central mystery of the original tale is common knowledge, and Jekyll and Hyde has become a synonym for split personality. We turned our attention to the central conflict of the story, the struggle between duty and lust for the soul of Henry Jekyll. Listeners can decide for themselves who wins that battle.

This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization from one of the classic authors.

    " Well, it was an interesting story, but it was very, very, very short. I also think that I would have enjoyed it more if I wouldn't have known the plot already, but this book is so popular that there are few persons who don't know this story. However, it was a nice, quick read. But I liked Frankenstein, and especially Dracula, the other two great Horror novels, much better! "

    " once you've translated it into an understandable language it's a very interesting story with suspense and gothic imagery, until then it may as well be in mandarin "

    " Confusing, but at the end of the book concerning Jekyll's explanation, it evoked sadness. I liked it more towards the end of the novel. "
