The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1886) Book Review
You know, I have to admit that when I was a kid I was a total nerd… I mean I was a computer programmer, I loved (and still do) stuff like Star Trek & Star Wars…. I used to read the paper when I was barely in the double digits (and I actually understood it.)
But one of the things that I used to do when I was still in the single digits & and barely in the double digits (I still like to do so, I just don’t get the opportunity to do so as much as I used to like to,) but that being that I used to read a lot of the Victorian era classics!
One of these books, and one that I have enjoyed in it’s various big screen adaptions, and still enjoy in it’s novel form is, ‘The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde’ (1886)!
I mean this awesome story tells the tale of a man… a Doctor who finds out the horrible truth about the duality of good vs. evil, when he makes a potion that turns the kindly, ‘Doctor Jekyll’ in to a homicidal maniac, ‘Mr. Hyde’!
Well I will be honest with you guys and say this, I can’t really say that there is anything wrong with this story at all, it is engrossing, it is timeless… I mean people who have never read the original story or have seen the movies or what not knows about Dr. Jeykll & Mr. Hyde should enjoy it… Despite it’s age…
If you haven’t checked this one out yet, then I do recommend doing so, it is well worth it if you get a chance!
