Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Buy It Now!

Most of us are at least slightly familiar with the story of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." You probably know that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are two personalities in one body, one evil, and the other good, but for most of us that's all we know. At least, that's all I knew!

The book, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" was written by Robert Louis Stevenson, and yes, it does tell the story of two men in one body. It's actually a rather short book - which surprised me. It was interesting though!

We first meet Mr. Hyde, a man consumed by evil, as he thoughtlessly runs over a child. The incident is later reported to a friend of Dr. Jekyll's, although at that point neither of them knows who he is, or his connection to Dr. Hyde.

The atrocities caused by Mr. Hyde, and the reasons behind Dr. Jekyll's experimentation that led to Hyde's creations, are mysteries you'll have to solve by reading the book!

I loved this book and was so glad that I read it! It was wonderful to dispense with the Hollywood drivel and really find out what the author had in mind with this story. Great book!
