The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Running on the theory that humans have good & evil sides to them, Stevenson tells the story of a doctor who experiments with this theory. Dr. Jekyll creates a formula that is able to turn him into another person, physically. This alter ego, Mr. Hyde, is full of evil and is disliked by all who see him. Dr. Jekyll's experiment gets out of hand when Hyde murders a man. From then on this experiment gets out of control.

I liked this story. Though Stevenson is wordy and elaborately descriptive in telling this tale, I still liked it. I often found myself having to re-read parts of the story so I could figure out what was going on. This is definitely a book I would read again. Chances are I'd get more out of it the second time around since it would fill in the holes from the first reading. This book will find a great home on my bookshelf.
