I had an invitation to see Jeckyl and Hyde the musical production that is on its way to Broadway. I wanted to review the story before I went. I was really happy that I read the book as it gave me great insight into the plot of the production. The production was quite different that the synopsis of the book. The Nook book was easy to navigate and I enjoyed reading the Old English literary style.

I love the story, but for some reason a lot of the words are gibberish. Like the word "protege" is spelled "prot^g^." D

The real story isn't the same as what is proliferated by popular culture. There is no big, green ugly monster. While it's fun to watch Bugs Bunny turn into a green monster after drinking a potion, or a small man turn into a giant monster in the movies, the real story is more subdued but also more personal, tragic, and interesting. I recommend this book to anyone.

This ebook was clearly not created by a human. The text is garbled.

This is an amazing book about the good and evil sides in a man. It was wonderfully creepy and made me think.
