Released in the late 1880s, this thriller is full of an expansive plot full of linguistically suspenseful and surprising elements. Considered to be two of the most well-developed and explored characters in literature history, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde prove to be the perfect characters to expose the duality of man. Stevenson's analysis of good versus evil, or, rather, their ability to coexist, is set against the backdrop of scientific exploration and the entrapment of addiction.

A tale of good and bad...
I have seen one or two film versions of this book, but wanted to read - or rather hear - the original.
I particularly like the indirect perspective the reader takes. We hear about the case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde indirectly - from the point of view of the characters around them.
I didn't like the voice of the narrator too much and had to get used to it at first.
The story itself is amazing of course. It is really a strange case and thrilling from beginning to end. To me It is as up-to-date as it can be (and will be) in that both good and bad is there in everybody - it really is up to oneself to decide which side of a character one wants to facilitate.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
