Stevenson's 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' has been portrayed many times through various films, but Valerie Martin's novel takes a different viewpoint- through the eyes of Mary, Dr. Jekyll's housemaid. For those who have seen the film prior to reading, be warned that the book differs significantly on several important points. Martin's novel is original, thoughtful, and ultimately just as tragic as the original story. The reader can easily identify with Mary, who can't seem to shake off her sad past. Her relationship with Dr. Jekyll is not one of romance, but of shared unhappiness and tragedy. In Mary Dr. Jekyll sees a trustworthy servant, while Mary views the doctor as a virtuous man who can have no connection to her unhappy past. Martin does an excellent job of preserving the issues of morality and psychology that the orginal novel puts forth. I highly recommend this novel- you won't be disappointed.
