Review: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HydeDr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an interesting story. I can only imagine the impact it would have had if I’d been able to read it without knowing that Jekyll and Hyde were the same person. One of the problems of having great books like this become part of the zeitgeist.

What was especially incredible, though, even in light of the above observation, was Stevenson’s understanding of good and evil, and the power each has over us. I imagine this would be a good tale to warn children from giving into their own desires and temptations too often.
