This book explores the idea of dual personality of jekyll that led him to his experiments, and his inexorable and finally fatal descent into evil.
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.

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!
Great book to read
Ok, but for older people.
This book is a mix between something an elderly person would read to a young person interested in horror books. I ( who is personally interested in horror/crime and thrillers ) didn’t necessarily like it. It had a lot of complicated words that I didn’t know the meaning of, hence why I think it is for older people. Though if you like reading about murders and lawyers then this is the book for you.
