In a fog-wreathed London, the respected Dr Jekyll's experiments on the dual nature of man unleash a brute that feels no moral restraint or remorse. Although excited by this freedom, Jekyll discovers that he is unable to control the power of his vicious alter ego and is faced with shameful discovery or ignominious death.

Haunting and thrilling, this atmospheric fable is one of the world's greatest short stories. It is twinned here with Markheim, an earlier tale of second selves, conscience and the struggle between good and evil.

    " Read for halloween, a great story around the dark side of humans that could be in us all. "

    " Loved it! Never thought I would actually like something I studied at school, but yes it was awesome. I neeeded a Halloween story for the week and I found this book in my mom's shelf. I have to say, though, I will forever wonder who really commited suicide, Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde. "

    " I knew the premise prior to reading it, and maybe that was the reason I wasn't overly engaged with the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 10/12/2011

    " This was SUCH a creepy book. And an excellent allegory for what happens when you give in to temptation and allow the "natural man" to take control. I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rozonda | 10/7/2011

    " Stevenson plunges deep into the human soul and discovers what psyhcology was to confirm much later: that the ego is in fact, a multiplicity of egos, and that each person can be many people. A tale of man facing the monsters within. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 10/5/2011

    " The style was definitely old-fashioned, but I think that helped me see this more as a fable or parable than a really plot-driven booked. I knew roughly what was going to happen, but enjoyed reading Stevenson's descriptions of duality. "
