An Apple Books Classic edition.
What would happen if you let your darkness out? Are you certain you’d be able to rein it back in? When Dr. Jekyll turned toward the dark side, he was convinced he could turn back at will, while his friends assumed he’d fallen under the influence of the criminal Mr. Hyde. But the good doctor—and all his acquaintances—were very, very wrong. Can Dr. Jekyll escape the clutches of Mr. Hyde before it’s too late?
Set in the London society of the 1880s, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella is a masterful tale of suspense and psychological intrigue. The story plays to primal fears like losing control of ourselves and discovering that a person we trusted is actually someone—or something—else entirely: a monster. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a must-read for anyone who loves mysteries and crime fiction.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Written during a frenzied five-day period, Robert Louis Stevenson’s allegory of good versus evil pulls you into its feverish spell. The story of the relationship between the upstanding Dr Jekyll and the diabolical Mr Hyde becomes more chaotic and magnetic with every page. Stevenson’s Victorian London—shrouded in a constant and eerie fog—acts as the sinister backdrop to Jekyll’s agonising, bone-crunching metamorphoses and violent urges. A gothic classic that’s inspired countless modern-day superhero myths, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde offers a stark warning about the darker, instinctual side of human nature.
great book and was able to read to all in one sitting!
A short easy-to-read classic
A great short novella, highlighting the duality of man and the potential animalistic nature we hold within ourselves. Easy and quick to read!
Classic for a reason.
I thought I’d get this on my phone as i have been reading through all the classic horror novels and I wasn’t expecting too much with an 100 page length. But, wow I couldn’t put it down. Very suspenseful and keeps the action going at a good, but not too quick, pace. Very entertaining especially if you don’t want to commit for a long read!
