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.
