  • Great

    By Purpah Jesus
    Short story, easy to read and understand. I read a lot of old spooky stories and they definitely fall more under the stressful category than the scary one. I like a book that will make me sweat and this was one of them. Fast paced compared to many older stories.
  • Thrilling

    By rcdiggers
    Incredible story, written beautifully. Deep and provocative, it examines man's internal struggle between the restraint of good and the freedom of evil. Jekyll's inability to give up the allure of Hyde, even when he knows he should, is at the heart of every addiction. This should be required reading.

    Still relatable today
  • A Gothic Masterpiece

    By Dwardeng
    As with Shelley's Frankenstein, there's nothing like the original. Too bad, as with Frankenstein, that so many terrible imitations spewed forth among us since.

  • I thought I knew the story

    By Meso America
    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.
