Everyone should read this classic book. There are so many references in life to this book, and also helps one deal with one's demons.

Atty. Mr. Utterson is worried, as the keeper of Dr Henry Jekyll's will. The will gives everything to Edward Hyde incase of Henry's death or disappearance. Mr. Utterson met the hideous Hyde once and does not trust him. Well it looks like Henry's will will have to be executed as the housekeeper; Mr. Pool thinks Hyde hid Henry's body.

Once again, I saw Spencer Tracy before I read the book, so I was anticipating a different type of story. I read "Treasure Island" so I am familiar with Stevenson's writing style but I did not realize that this story was more of a mystery that draws the conclusion and revelation in the end. The explanation of man and his duel personality is excellent and I suspect he draws on personal experience.

I also read the kindle version. It was sparse and strait forward; there was not a lot of fluff and speculation from other personalities. I made sure that the text-to speech was activated before purchasing. This helped but I had to keep reminding myself that the names were mispronounced.

Format: Hardcover
Once again, the Everyman hardback edition doesn't disappoint. The high quality book matches the stories inside (the edition also includes some of Stevenson's other short stories). Everybody knows the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but I'll bet if you ask around you won't find many people who have read it! Do yourself a favor and buy this book, curl up one evening and discover imagery and prose that are rarely matched today.

In any event without the kindle I probably would have bought the book but not gotten around to reading it for a few years.

By Brian Murphy on Jan. 26 2009
Format: Paperback
This book really provides an interesting insight on the duality of man. This novel really is short and sweet, I read it very quickly, but enjoyed every single word. I of course, knew nothing of the book going into it, other than the flawd vision that television had told me of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For 1.15 I couldn't have picked a better book to buy.

I really do not enjoy reading reviews where the reviewer discusses plot details of the book. If you are thinking of reading this book, I highly suggesting doing so, you won't regret it. Unless you have a sudden change of character.

I have seen many movie versions of this classic. So, I made the assumption that I knew the true story. Then I read this book. Was my assumption ever wrong!!!
This particular book of less than 150 pages has five parts:
(1) Opening Pages. They include a brief biography of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 to 1894). (Takes up 4% of the book.)
(2) Introductory Essay. This was written by the late, famous Russian author Vladimir Nabokov. (Takes up 20%.)
(3) The Actual Story. Its original title is "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (1886). (Takes up 65%.)
(4) Afterword to the Story. It is written by a modern writer. (Takes up 8%.)
(5) Selected Bibliography. Outlines great works by and about R.L. Stevenson. (Takes up 3%.)
The introductory essay was an actual lecture Nabokov gave when he was associate professor at Cornell University from 1948 to 1959. It gives a thorough, detailed analysis of this "seldom read" classic.
The afterword consists of a shorter analysis of this classic by the modern writer Dan Chaon. I felt that this afterword provided valuable insight regarding the story of Jekyll and Hyde.
Chaon sums up the entire story: "The structure of ['Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde'] follows a path as indirect and elusive as its multiple narrative voices. With its obliquely recorded incidents, its eyewitness accounts and sealed confessions, it resembles...a [police detective's] casebook--a collection of gathered clues, fragments, through which the clever detective may be able to...project a complete narrative. Perhaps one of the most compelling aspects of this novel [of ten chapters] is that, in fact, there's so much left here for [the reader] to fill in, so many scenes that [the reader] can only imagine.
