The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novel written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Mr Hyde, who dislikes humanity as a general rule.

The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality, in the sense that within the same person there is both an apparently good and an evil personality, each being quite distinct from the other.

This story was an immediate success and is one of Stevenson's best-selling works. Stage adaptations began in Boston and London within a year of its publication and it has gone on to inspire scores of major film and stage performances.

It's not everyone who gets parents like Jack and Marge.... Mike Leonard is a lucky man. It's not everyone who gets parents like Jack and Marge. At 87, Jack is a pathological optimist with an inexhaustible gift of gab. Marge, Jack's bride of 60 years, though cut from the same rough bolt of Irish immigrant cloth, is his polar opposite, pessimistic and proud of it. What was their son, Mike, thinking when he took a sabbatical from his job with NBC News so he could pile these two world-class originals along with three of his grown kids and a daughter-in-law into a pair of rented RVs and hit the road for a month?

Mike was thinking that he wanted to give his parents the ultimate family reunion. And so, one February morning, three generations of Leonards set out on their journey under the dazzling Arizona sky. Thirty minutes later, one of the humongous recreational vehicles has an unplanned meeting with a concrete island at a convenience store. Thus begins the adventure of a lifetime, and an absolute gem of a book.

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill Bradley | 2/9/2014

    " I thought it very weird that throughout this book, people are terrified of Mr. Hyde. But, when they describe him and his activities, it's so vague. He's just "evil." And they don't really provide any examples of WHY he was so evil. I understand that he's the embodiment of the evil, selfish needs inside Jekyll, but if that's the only thing that makes him "evil" that doesn't seem very fair. The introduction to my version of the book mentioned that Stevenson had no issue with a man having sexual trysts with a woman, but that really seems like what he's implying Hyde was doing that was Jekyll's secret pleasures. It was just so vague it was hard for me to determine what the author was trying to say. Just about the hypocrisy of people during that time? How they put on a show for the public views? I feel like there was some message of the definition of evil in there that I must have missed, or was lacking. Otherwise, it was a fun story. I liked hearing the story from Utterson's view point and then ultimately understanding the story in steps until the confession from Jekyll. That made it more suspenseful in my opinion. Stevenson is a great story teller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suvam Mukherjee | 2/5/2014

    " One of the most astonishing stories I've ever read. You will sometimes feel that you're reading two stories- the other one hidden, darker and more profound. Must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savannah Milazzo | 1/29/2014

    " one of the most terrifying concepts I've ever beheld. it says little but implies much "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talib Tirmizi | 1/23/2014

    " I love that picturesque Victorian escapism Stevenson carves so easily. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dru | 1/22/2014

    " What I found most interesting is that the "Mr. Hyde" character is NOTHING like you've seen in any movie adaptation of this story. He is a dwarfish, vile little man....which ultimately did just what the author intended -- captured the antithesis of Dr. Jekyll. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 1/22/2014

    " Longer than I expected it to be. Lots of walking in the fog and a bit suspenseful as the story unfolds. Riding bike to the bus stop in early morning fog the day after I finished this story was somewhat creepy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Waisanen | 1/16/2014

    " I thought this book was fantastic. My only disappointment with it is that it was ridiculously short. I read it in about the time it takes to wait in the patient waiting room at the doctors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oldnetnerd | 1/14/2014

    " 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 Angel | 12/13/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Indi Oliveros | 12/6/2013

    " I liked the experiment, and the creation of Mr. Hyde, it was rally interesting. I think we all have a Mr. Hyde inside of us, or a Dr. Jekyll, depending of the side we want to show to the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 11/25/2013

    " A classic of Gothic literature, and one of my all-time favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Taylor | 11/8/2013

    " Jekyll and Hyde is is a fascinating look at the war between the good and evil selves within each of us. There is much food for theological thought in this beautifully written short story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felicia | 12/11/2012

    " I don't generally go for the "mad scientist creates a monster" kind of fiction. I hated Frankenstein. However, this was absolutely fantastic. Short, interesting and really creepy. Definitely worth your time... and then some. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricardo | 8/28/2012

    " Great stuff. I gave it four stars not so much for the text itself but more for it's narrative structure and relevance. Stevenson is a classic but this book is absolutely essential reading to understand our times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adastra | 6/3/2012

    " Somehow different from the stories and adaptations it inspired. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nelleke | 4/20/2012

    " I read this story for school 15 years ago. I really liked it then and I still like it now. Such a great idea for a story. A book about good and evil and how a good person becomes evil. Great horror from the 19th century. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nadia Fadhillah | 3/25/2012

    " Short but such a great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 12/3/2011

    " I still love it, although it isn't all that exciting... A bit slower pace than modern horror stories, it's still a classic tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jukka | 7/23/2011

    " Nice read. Even though most people (me included) know the tale of Jekyll and Hyde in some detail, it is still worth a read. Everything goes as you expect, but the final confessions and Jekyll's self studies are very intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Sherman | 7/13/2011

    " Like the Time Machine a bit dated but still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/22/2011

    " One of the most hilarious plays I've ever read. Oscar Wilde is amazing. "

    " Funniest thing I've ever read. And the 2002 film adaptation is great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 5/11/2011

    " I bloody love this play. I laugh so hard every time I read it! Simply never gets old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samaa | 5/11/2011

    " Simple and witty. Oscar Wilde has the unique ability to tell a cynical truth in both an understated and funny manner! The play is filled with quotable lines : D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynley | 5/7/2011

    " I want to name my child Earnest now. Oscar Wilde has produced a stunningly clever, charmingly witty, and wonderfully funny story. Well worth the read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 5/6/2011

    " This book was quite hilarious. The dry British humor added the right amount of subtlety to the very things Oscar Wilde was poking at such as the upper classes of society, marriage, and the church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla | 5/6/2011

    " This play was a quick and easy read. I like the light-hearted tone, and the easy way it poked fun at stereotypes. It was quite enjoyable, but not something particularly amazing. It was fun and hilarious while it lasted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/1/2011

    " Read this for a college drama class and enjoyed the comical aspects. At first I couldn't quite get a hold on the characters and who was who, but it got easier and more entertaining as I began to piece together the characters and situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skaditch | 5/1/2011

    " Very funny. You can see the origins of shows like " Three's Company" and the likes, although Ernest is far superior. This pay could be put on at any time, in any setting and still be timely. After all, identity thieves are everywhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timmy | 5/1/2011

    " Hilarity. Loved it. It is astounding when you read something this old that is still so relevant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/30/2011

    " Oscar Wilde is hilarious. The wit of the characters and the absurdity of the situations is really funny. I enjoyed the duality theme and the substance of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 4/29/2011

    " Read this for my AP brit. lit class and LOVED It. Clever and witty. "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his."
