The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Robert Louis Stevenson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
An Apple Books Classic edition.
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.

User reviews about this book
Thank you that was fun
Not for me
By Mr. Scrooge Mcduck
Maybe great in its time, but not great for me as I like whodunnits.
I like the story and the plot twist a lot and was interested to see how things would turn out in the end. However, the pace was a bit too fast for me to completely sink in the atmosphere. If anyone reading this doesn’t mind a fast paced mystery, check this book out.
Extremely good well written classic
By Joseph R. R.
I throughly enjoyed every bit of this book. As you would expect a book of this age the vocabulary was very ancient, however it added a richness to the overall aesthetic of the novel. It was a classic that had been held up through time.
This book is not good
A Wonderful Read
As a young adult this book was quite a fascinating read. The issues brought up by this book are very much still relevant to today and its issues. The book even making its way into the English language as well.
The only real problem that I had reading was the advanced vocabulary and grammar. Beyond that it was a smooth read that gripped me until the end. I don’t usually write reviews for books; however I had to for this one. Would recommend to anyone vaguely interested in this tale!
You can feel every emotion Jekyll has in this book. This book was an incredible adventure and I enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend this book to anybody that has the ability to read the old language well.
A frightening but terrific classic
I first read this book thinking it would be one of those many mediocre short novella type books which many exaggerations are made about, claiming “It’s the greatest book”. Boy, was I wrong. This was an amazing, frightening novel.
Read it and shut
By the old Mr Hide
It’s an old secret
By Purpah Jesus
Short story, easy to read and understand. I read a lot of old spooky stories and they definitely fall more under the stressful category than the scary one. I like a book that will make me sweat and this was one of them. Fast paced compared to many older stories.
