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.
This was for me an adventure that had no end.. The suspense is fantastic... the build up of man’s bravery is more than inspiring.
Brilliant depiction of human nature.
An incredibly human book that documents the outcome of giving ourselves over to evil whether in thought or deed. Hopefully it is enough of a warning to stand as a solid precaution against “thrilling” and vile acts.
