This version of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is an instant classic and must own for any fan of Robert Louis Stevenson. The narrator, David McCallion, does a tremendous job with this book, bringing life to each character with their own voice throughout the book. My only wish is that he gave a bit more of a scary demeanor to the voice of Mr. Hyde, but don’t let that deter you from getting this wonderful rendition of an all-time classic story.
Some of the best novels ever published are those that focus on someone with a dark secret. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is no different, and is one of the best classic tales of deceit, death, and confusion. Robert Louis Stevenson is a master at keeping my attention, giving only a few bread crumbs to lead me on the trail until the whole backstory is revealed. The good-natured lawyer Mr. Utterson is growing suspicious of Dr. Jekyll's friend, Mr. Hyde, especially when he discovers that Dr. Jekyll has drawn up paperwork leaving all his belongings to the strange Mr. Hyde should anything happen to him.
It seems that with every little misfortune that occurs in town, either Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde are always involved. This fact again scares Mr. Utterson, and we eventually find out that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are one and the same; Mr. Hyde simply represents the pleasure-seeking part of Dr. Jekyll who emerges from time to time. This, we know at the end, is destructive. Part mystery, part shocker, David McCallion takes us through all of the ups and downs of the trickery, the deceit, and the suspense this novel has to offer. Definitely a great addition to your audiobook library!
