Three interrelated stories make up the plot of The Suicide Club. They each stand on their own, but there is an overall plot that brings them together. It centers around the hero, Prince Florizel of Bohemia. He attempts to solve the mystery of a strange club that turns out to have a very different purpose than its name suggests.

The three stories in the trilogy are: Story of the Young Man with the Cream Tarts, Story of the Physician and the Saratoga Trunk, and The Adventure of the Hansom Cab. Also included are dramatized versions of two of Stevenson's most famous short stories: Markheim and The Sire de Maletroit's Door.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 2/14/2014

    " Hard to read that Victorian English. Creepy story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 2/9/2014

    " Loved it! Very good story and execution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 1/20/2014

    " I read this book after seeing the 1936 movie, Trouble For Two, starring Robert Montgomery and Frank Morgan, which is based on the three connected stories of The Suicide Club. As others have said, the first story is the strongest and could have been expanded. I also found the middle story - The Physician and the Saratoga Trunk - compelling. The last story which ties together the other two, seemed a bit rushed at the end and didn't really explain everything. It's like Stevenson originally wrote three separate tales then decided to give them a common link. I enjoyed the occasional humor. Recommended for those who like Victorian literature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 1/17/2014

    " Excellent... until the last pages, which are timid and anticlimactic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iziur | 11/22/2013

    " I found this story very catching... Just a few lines into the book and I was hooked. I believe with just a few adjustments it could be a wonderful movie. A very nice short read by the great Stevenson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zombaby Cera | 6/25/2013

    " This was a great mystery of sorts. The Body Snatcher was also included in this book as well and was exciting to read. Robert Louis Stevenson has yet to disappoint me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/6/2013

    " 3 short stories with interwoven plots, starting with the Prince's run-in with a club of suicidals who take the burden out of suicide by turning it into a game. I enjoyed the first story most, but it's such a short book (50-some pages I think) that I had to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn | 11/7/2012

    " I started reading this book, but because of a busy schedule I never finished it. I do intend to finish it soon though, because it was a fascinating, if slightly morbid, read... :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 serrulatae (girl a) | 8/15/2012

    " This was a big disappointment. The first story had a super interesting idea that did not really get explored at all, and then the following two stories dealt with trying to capture a criminal from the first story. Wasted potential. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 8/25/2011

    " The rich main character gets off way to easy! But RLS slips in some fab exposition in this bad boy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 8/25/2011

    " This was just a fun book to read. The book I read had other short stories that were a blast to read as well. He's one of my new (to me) favorite authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Slytheringirl | 6/13/2011

    " Not too bad for RLS, but he could have done better. The first tale is the best of the three and would have been better off if he fleshed it out and kept it by itself. The others in this trilogy are pretty typical Victorian fare, but are still good reads. "

  • 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. "

    " LOOOOOVEEDD it ;) like nothing I've ever read before! It was spectacular! lol "

    " a great classic in psychology, murder, & suspense. "
