  • I thought I knew the story

    I've seen pretty near all the Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde movies made. I thought I knew the story pretty well. Hollywood really does a good rewrite of Stevenson's novella. Reading this story gave me quite an insight into why this story has captured the imagination of the public for so long. I tried to imagine what it was like to read this story for the first time. It is wonderfully suspenseful. Told from the view of Jekyll's friends and acquaintances before we read Jeykell's own description of what happened in his laboratory, it captures the imagination. This is a good read.
  • Classic

    By peacockfeathers000
    This book is a true classic. The storyline is absolutely fascinating, but the style of writing is pre-1900 which make certain parts very difficult to understand. Though this story is great, I wouldn't suggest this to an amateur reader for the style is very complex.
