'All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil: and Edward Hyde, alone in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil' Published as a 'shilling shocker', Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy gave birth to the idea of the split personality. The story of respectable Dr Jekyll's strange association with 'damnable young man' Edward Hyde; the hunt through fog-bound London for a killer; and the final revelation of Hyde's true identity is a chilling exploration of humanity's basest capacity for evil. This edition also includes Stevenson's chilling story 'The Bottle Imp'. The "Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

3.5 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
The story is widely known and very influential. It was retold and replayed countless number of times by practically everywhere and everybody, including one of the best cartoon series of all the time, Looney Tunes: For this reason people writing blurbs for the book decided it is quite fine to take a...

3.0 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
I think we all know the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.It was a very quick read, but unfortunately the story never really captivated me the way I expected it to. I think that's due to the plot twist (meaning that I knew the story already and therefor I didn't get too excited about the twist with t...
