    I Also Recommend:

    An intriguing tale on the duality of man

    Like Frankenstein, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a tale of a good man who lets his ambitions lead him astray. But unlike Frankenstein, where one should not judge by looks alone, Mr. Hyde is exactly as he appears. To borrow a cliche, evil incarnate.

    While most of Frankenstein is told from a first-person's perspective, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is narrated by several people who have either met Hyde or knows Jekyll. If I wasn't already aware of how the story played out, I imagine this would have been a great setup for the dramatic revelation at the end. As it is, there are times when I couldn't help but forget about the ending in my search for any tell-tale hints early on to clue in the reader. There are a few but I'm not sure I could have made the correct deduction on my own.

    The battle between the personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is supposed to reflect the duality of man, a battle of good versus evil. If so, the ending is a rather pessimistic outlook isn't it ? Mr. Hyde as the personification of evil may not have escaped just punishment but at least in his struggles with Dr. Jekyll, he gained the upper hand. However if the winner of their battle was Dr. Jekyll, the tale might not have been as memorable. That is my take at least.

    An enjoyable read. Definitely should be read at least once.

    Poor quality OCR scan

    The letters are quite confused, making this impractical to read. Try the Gutenberg edition instead.

    Not a great book.

    The Strange Case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde, is very unorignal. While reading, you will find yourself thinking about the point of the story. Well, there is no meaning behind this book. It's hard to enjoy, and you will get nothing out of it. You will not like it, even if you are reading for "fun" DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    A timeless mystery.

    ¿Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde¿ is a very quick, but interesting read. The genre is a mix between a mystery and a horror. The book, over all, has a dark feel to it, which adds a hint of gloominess. <p> Robert Louis Stevenson delivers the content of this book very well. Throughout the novel, there is an uncomfortable feeling that dwells in the reader¿s mind. The only thing that isn¿t done well is that the outcome of the story was fairly obvious. A factor that might contribute to this is that the tale is very well known in our society. It is still a great read for those who know the story and for those who don¿t.

    great book for a classic

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a really good book. It caught your attention from the beginning of the story.The only thing about the book I didn't like was that it was kind of hard to keep up with. But it had a terrifc suprise ending.

    Very Good Book

    This is probably the best book I've ever read. Me being just 14 you may say, ' Oh what does this kid know?' Well I've read enough books to know that this is indeed a great book. The book has just one plot but, tops everything off with an ironic and twisted ending. You probably have allready asummed the ending, but if you had no idea of what this book was about you would be in complete ahhhhhhh over it. Very exciting. Set down on a Monday to begin reading it and finished the following night. It's considered a 'Can't put downer'.

    Strange Case

    What I think of this book is pretty cool but strange. When first I start to read this book everyhting was weird even the characterization. Then I get used to it and it gets more intersting.

    One of Best Books

    This book is one of the three best horror books ever made along with Mary Shelly's 'Frankenstein' and Bram Stoker's 'Dracula.' I think everyone should read it to see if they like it.

    The Life of Hyde

    *Riley slowly licked Morgan's c<_>lit, making Morgan shudder. Riley deepened her licks and pulled down Morgan's shorts. Riley lifted Morgan's right leg onto a nearby box, spreading her legs to get a good position. Riley opened up Morgan's p<_<ussy and sucked on its insides. Morgan gasped and moaned.* <br> "ooo! Yea...that feels good..." moaned Morgan. <br> *Riley widened Morgan's legs and slipped a finger inside her, moving in and out. Riley added a second finger and licked up any juices that came out of Morgan. Morgan began to squeeze her n<_>ipples, hard under her touch. Riley moved in and out faster and faster making Morgan twitch with delight. Morgan came all over Riley's fingers and Riley licked them up. <p> Sorry guys but I have to end the chapter here. I'm really busy at the moment and will right either a beyter chapter or the secobd part of this chapter. You'll see. Bye now!

    By cd

    I really like this book. It is scary in some parts but is great over all. Anyone under the age of 10 shouldn't read this book. But besides that it is pretty good book about a man finds a wy to split the good and evil in him to to diffrent beings while still being one. Hard to describe but after you read it you will get what I am saying. You should read this book!
