The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Title: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Category: Fiction

Review: This book is a classic. It has been made into a movie and is a very famous book. This was the first time reading this book. I liked the book, but it was different from what I thought it would be. The story, more or less, is told through Dr. Jekyll’s lawyer friend. You really don’t get to the story of how Mr. Hyde came to be till the last two chapters of the book. I expected the book to be scarier and it wasn’t. I think from what I had heard, I had been expecting a scary book. It is more like a scientific fiction-like book. It’s not disappointing, but I wish there had been more of the laboratory experience and more of Dr. Jekyll and the telling through his eyes. Still, read this, it’s a classic.
