    One thought on “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories”

    1. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Other Stories turned out to be a relatively quick read Here are my thoughts on these stories The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr HydeThis was a little different than I expected It s rather introspective, if that s an appropriate word The emphasis is not on the action or the dirty deeds that Mr Hyde perpetrates Instead, the focus is on the duality of the natures of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde In truth, they are not separate men They are two different aspec [...]

    2. I only read the first four or five stories in this, but they were all interesting, if a bit products of their times Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was a weird read for me, since the story really needs ignorance to work well, I think So sadly, I don t think I appreciated it the way someone might if they came upon it without prior knowledge of the twist It was clearly good, but I was bored than enthralled, unfortunately The other stories I read were much enjoyable because I had no idea what to expect May [...]

    3. These greats from the past wrote in such a sophisticated way One could really learn a lot about how the written word is used and how language was eloquent back then Words were used just like a painter uses the paint to blend and manipulate the pigments on canvas for a picture to manifest A single brush stroke could be the virtual equivalent of a beautiful sentence I often wonder that if the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson were around today what would he think of the smart phone He would probabl [...]

    4. This was a good story It also had some very horrific parts Reading it has made me appreciate Stevnson s work on even .

    5. I can t really tell you what I was expecting when I started this story except, of course, that I wasn t quite expecting what I got.This is another of those classic tales that I ve long assumed I ve known, but never have really known at all I had images in my head of foaming test tubes or beakers and of hair spouting from the backs of hands To be honest, I also had visions of lots of sex too Unlike Frankenstein, this story mostly lives up to what I guess could be called its image in the popular i [...]

    6. Review originally posted on my book blog afrolicthroughfiction.wordpreThis review will be done a little differently, as I will be giving a short review for each short story, then an overall rating for the book 1 Strange Case of Dr Jekyll Mr HydeI went into this story knowing only the tiniest of details, so I was very intrigued to see how I liked it At first it was difficult to get into, because I had to get used to the writing and the time frame seems to jump around a bit, but soon the story tur [...]

    7. Jekyll and Hyde The dual natureThis is also available at my blog, 149 Novels.There s a popular question if you could choose a super power, would you choose flight, or invisibility The question is deceptive, because it s not just about entering the world of comic book heroes It s about why you want that power People who want to fly want to get someplace quickly, want to stop paying for transportation, and want to show off In an episode of This American Life, one man specifically says that all the [...]

    8. Somewhere in the second trimester of fetal development of first world babies, knowledge of the story of Jekyll and Hyde is passed down the umbilical cord from mother to child, and thus are we all born with a basic understanding of this tale of duality It is nearly impossible to live in a developed country and not understand a Jekyll and Hyde reference Since I felt I already knew the story, and that the surprise ending is forever ruined for everyone alive today, I put off reading it until I was 3 [...]

    9. I read this one so I had something to base any retellings I read about the infamous Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde story on.I like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde I didn t perceive it to read as dark as I thought it would based upon my other encounters with the story But it was good and entertaining.I also enjoyed the Suicide Club a lot I found myself pretty pulled into that story.There was one story in this collection of short stories that I am still not 100% sure what went down It was the narrator Not that there [...]

    10. I enjoy the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and found the other tales enjoyable the most interesting read for me came at the end of the tales and was of papers that were published around the time of the stories These were on Mental health and how the Victorians try to explain the changes that too place in a person at different times of their lives.

    11. Jekyll and Hyde is one of those stories that everyone knows but very few people actually have read I was well aquainted with the general idea of the story from it s various permutations, but this is the first time I read it One of the major differences is that in almost every version I can think of, Hyde is some hulking brute, but in the story he s actually smaller, physically I found that interesting, and odd.Other than that, though, I wasn t entirely enthralled with the story mostly, I think, [...]

    12. Party of my creepy Halloween reads boo Just a quick note Jeckyll Hyde was fairly entertaining, filled with the archaic Victorian verbal effluvia It was a wild, cold, seasonable night of March, with a pale moon, lying on her back as though the wind had tilted her, and flying wrack of the most diaphanous and lawny texture Oh those lawny textures As usual with these old stories, the mechanisms of the story telling from the POV of a 3rd party, the tale in retrospect, and telling instead of showing f [...]

    13. This collection includes Stevenson s better known works and the lesser ones In my opinion, these lesser known short stories are just as good as Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and maybe even better just because they haven t been as widespread His stories have a little bit of everything Sci Fi, detectives, princes, mysteries and they re not too long if you just want a short read.

    14. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a book that I would recommend to readers who enjoy a good, suspenseful, enigma This book has a mixture of horror and mystery The setting of this story is set near the late nineteenth century so the use of language might be a bit difficult to understand at first, but becomes easier to understand later on in the story The author does a good job on sending out his message to the readers throughout the whole story This book is about a scientist called Hen [...]

    15. Confession I joined a new book club I felt like I was cheating on my California book club I promise I was thinking about them while we discussed the duality of man the carnal and the supernal This concept is one those universal battles that all people face though many do not acknowledge the battle between being their best self and indulging in life s pleasures Dr Jekyll is a good man with a good idea about separating our dueling selves, but of course, it does not work out the way he planned and [...]

    16. I couldn t find the exact publication that I read, which was The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and other Short Stories The other short stories were The Suicide Club, Markheim, the Body Snatcher, and one other story I can t recall but which was written like Scottish brogue and awfully difficult to read For the most part they re about the struggle between good and evil I enjoyed them all, although the endings weren t terribly imaginative I think the Suicide Club was my favorite.

    17. I liked this but I didn t love it I m glad that it was written because so many great film adaptations were based on it but it s kind of the same way I feel about Dracula the movies and the whole archetype based on the work far outstrip the work itself.

    18. Rating is currently for Jekyll and Hyde only I d like to read the shorts, but not right now.This is immensely enjoyable than when I first read it back in high school It lends itself to so much academic analysis, you could teach a whole class on it and probably still not cover all the nuances contained within But even non academically, it s an excellent story.Although it is a relatively well known, tropey plot line at this point in time, I can only imagine how suspenseful and horrifying the whol [...]

    19. This book was boring And short I already kind of knew what was going to happen thanks Once Upon a Time and that might have ruined the tension a bit for me But then, not much was happening, so the tension probably would never have been there, even if I didn t already know what was going to happen So I guess I should be thankful that it was so short This book just didn t do it for me.

    20. You start a question, and it s like starting a stone You sit quietly on the top of a hill and away the stone goes, starting others and presently, some bland old bird is knocked on the head in his own back garden and the family have to change their name No sir, I make it a rule of mine the it looks like Queer Street, the less I ask I really, really enjoyed Jekyll and Hyde Stevenson has performed the miracle of crafting a masterful, engaging plot into a very short book The mystery and the intrig [...]

    21. Comencemos por el principio Le este libro en numerosas ocasiones primero por gusto personal estaba en la biblioteca de mi abuelo , luego para el colegio y tambi n para la academia de ingl s Y la semana pasada lo le nuevamente para el Serendipia Club club de lectura de la Comunidad Blogger Argentina.Algunos detalles no los recordaba, otros me resultaban claros como si lo hubiese hace unos d as Admito que la experiencia lectora no es la misma cuando uno ya conoce la resoluci n del misterio, pero m [...]

    22. A brilliantly written collection of stories that reflect the complexities and desires of the human conditions The classic tale of Jekyll and Hyde reflects how people yearn to be someone else or lead a double life I found Jekyll s character interesting than Hyde s Hyde was clear in his wants and desires and did what he wanted, how he wanted and when he wanted while Jekyll was clearly far restrained and controlled The comparison between the two characters reflects on the dual and competing chara [...]

    23. I ve only finished the titular novella for now Perhaps, in the future, I will return to the other stories Stevenson is a wonderful storyteller, but his sentences are incredibly winding and it takes some you might say sedulous effort on my part to always get the meaning behind each Still, despite their difficult nature, his sentences are quite beautiful I found his descriptions of different dualities to be particularly engaging for there is much than Jekyll versus Hyde and good versus evil withi [...]

    24. The first story in this collection, the famous or infamous Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, is well worth the read A classic story, but also very readable and well paced, Jekyll and Hyde is a fascinating tale to analyze, thinking of the nature of humanity and personality and what one s own darker side may desire I highly recommend anyone who enjoys the contemporary retellings of this story should certainly read the original The other stories included don t seem to have the same brilliance [...]

    25. The Strange Case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde is a novel full of mysteries, but murder, crime, and law, isn t the only thing waiting to be solved A London lawyer, Gabriel John Utterson, investigates strange cases that are cautiously happening to an old friend, Dr.Jekyll Many clues appear, but it just can t be solved yet The outcome to waiting too long lead to Drkyll s death, which revealed many clues to the murderer But Mystery is what was needed to be solved The strange case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hy [...]

    26. Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde s story was fascinating, but the fact that I already knew about his double personality ruined it for me Nevertheless, the suspense was equally pleasurable I loved the rest of the stories in the book He is a great storyteller I also found the Chapter on Dreams very illuminating and refreshing

    27. Suffice it to say, the best part about this entire book was Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde The Body Snatcher wasriguing, but not what I would call good The rest of the stories were uninteresting to me and the two essays, beyond the opening paragraph of the first, were as well.

    28. I enjoyed this Well plotted stories that are genuinely creepy in places, even when as with the title story everyone already knows what they re about by cultural osmosis.
