To preface, my edition of Jekyll and Hyde also has another little story in called The Bottle Imp hence why there's more pages in this.
This wasn't what I had anticipated Jekyll and Hyde would be like at all.
From the portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde in contemporary film I thought there would be more action, a more explicit reference to the split personality and also for Jekyll/Hyde's perspective to be in the novel. The vast majority however was told from the POV's of those that knew or knew of the two men. There was a letter from Jekyll that explained what had happened to him but that was all. I found this really easy to read, I took a little longer with it simply because I wanted to savour it.
As much as I liked the story I wish there had been more to it. I'm interested to see what aspects on my Uni modules can be applied to it though. I started reading this and found out that it was going to be part of the required reading for my Theory and Practice module this semester. Yay for serendipity.
