Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

February 5, 2018

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.
