Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Robert Louis Stevenson originally wrote 'Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde' as a 'chilling shocker.' He then burned the draft and, upon his wife's advice, rewrote it as the darkly complex tale it is today. Stark, skillfully woven, this fascinating novel explores the curious turnings of human character through the strange case of Dr. Jekyll, a kindly scientist who by night takes on his stunted evil self, Mr. Hyde. Anticipating modern psychology, 'Jekyll And Hyde' is a brilliantly original study of man's dual nature - as well as an immortal tale of suspense and terror.

Not as bad as Tom Sawyer Abroad, but no where near as great as the 1st two. It felt rushed and not thought out well. I did enjoy Tom's discovery of the murderers at the end though. Read full review
Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HydeUser Review - Kelsey - Goodreads
Classic. No doubt about it. The plot idea is unbelievably imaginative and dark. The language can be challenging at times, but it's definitely worth the extra work and time to understand and make sense of it. One of my favourite pieces of literature. Top notch. Read full review
