What would happen if you let your darkness out? Are you certain you’d be able to rein it back in? When Dr. Jekyll turned toward the dark side, he was convinced he could turn back at will, while his friends assumed he’d fallen under the influence of the criminal Mr. Hyde. But the good doctor—and all his acquaintances—were very, very wrong. Can Dr. Jekyll escape the clutches of Mr. Hyde before it’s too late?

Set in the London society of the 1880s, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella is a masterful tale of suspense and psychological intrigue. The story plays to primal fears like losing control of ourselves and discovering that a person we trusted is actually someone—or something—else entirely: a monster. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a must-read for anyone who loves mysteries and crime fiction.

  • Amazingly thought-provoking.

    By Zyon X
    This is a real page-turner. I could’ve easily finished in hours but was so pleased & intrigued that I forced myself to savor it over a few days. In addition to its eloquent scripting, this work is full of mysterious parables that force you to ponder the makings of man, goodness, and evil. Those who don’t enjoy it seem to lack the comprehensive ability to interpret its brilliance.
  • Great

    I had forgotten this story, glad I re-read it.
  • Tough read, but worth it

    By Linklex7
    Can be a bit of a tough read as it was clearly written a long long, LONG time ago. So it can get confusing with the speech. However, if you can power through it, it’s a decent read.
  • Classic story.

    By JulietteHarper
    The story of Jekyll and Hyde is such a classic. It was intriguing to read this book to learn the origins of this well known fable. It is a great short read. Yes, the story at times is dated but definitely worth the read!
  • Different from the Adaptations

    By Zaya83
    Once I got past the language used to tell the story I found myself engrossed in it. I was surprised by how much it differed from the movie adaptations I’ve seen and yet most of the story is the same. It has been streamlined for the silver screen. Although it’s often seen as horror or science fiction the philosophical theme of duality is made more explicit in the book than movies.
