Publication Date August 11, 2008
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde dramatically brings to life a science fiction case study of the nature of good and evil and the duality that can exist within one person.
The last Robert Louis Stevenson book I read was Treasure Island in the 3rd grade, and let’s face it, who really pays attention to required reading at age 9. Therefore, I felt it was time to revisit the author. This time, instead of a child’s adventure I went with something a little darker, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Impressions While Reading
It started out with a bang and immediately captured my interest. Even though, I knew who the murderer was the pacing was such that I was completely drawn in and had to hear the conclusion from the horse’s mouth.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was satisfactory and wonderfully described. I could now see myself going back and revisiting Treasure Island and exploring more of Robert Louis Stevenson’s works.
Impressions on Narration
Scott Brick did a marvelous job as a storyteller. He paused at the right places and left words hanging in midair for effect, which in turn left me hanging on his every word. It made for a wonderful listen.
