This dark psychological fantasy is more than a moral tale. It is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution and criminality, and the secret lives behind Victorian propriety, to create a unique form of urban Gothic.

The Dark Human Heart
- Jefferson "I love listening to or reading books--especially fantasy, science fiction, children's, classics, & historical."
Excellent performance of the classic tales
I decided to get this book after coming across some references to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide in self-development literature. All 3 stories have a flavor of a psychological thriller, amended for time and place. For me, Dr Jekyll-Mr. Hide story is more about the personality destruction by addiction, then about the split/dual personality. The narrator is excellent, with the perfect blend of passion for the plot and characters, and impartiality of a story teller.
