Description

"The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is the original title of a novel written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson that was first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll and the misanthropic Edward Hyde. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

"The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" was an immediate success and is one of Stevenson's best-selling works. Stage adaptations began in Boston and London within a year of its publication and it has gone on to inspire scores of major film and stage performances

Great classic but uses your mind

I have been planning on reading this book for awhile, but i struggled to start reading it. The audio book was great because it allowed me to read it on a road trip. It is a good book but you really have to focus on what is being said, because I found that it could be easy to miss a few words and then you could lose what is happening or which character is speaking. I enjoyed it but I'm not sure if I'll listen to it again.

Excellent but...

Some times a story lends itself to being narrated in an audiobook. Sadly, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde was not this type of story (for me at least). Without spoiling too much, an important part of the story is the "embedded stories", think of a letter within a story. These sort of things need to be read carefully. I opted to read along with the audiobook which made it brilliant. So if you can do that, or if you'd just prefer an audiobook, get this. However, I'd rather recommend getting the actual book. The narrator was good. The story was great. Highly recommended.
