Description

A mysterious door-way, an incident of ferocious violence, a respectable and popular scientist, well-known for his enjoyable dinner parties who suddenly changes his will, the brutal killing of an elderly Member of Parliament, a diabolical serum that can transform one person into another - truly the ingredients of a fast good thriller! Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde have captured the imaginations of readers ever since it was first published in 1886. It met with tremendous success and the words "Jekyll and Hyde" entered the English language as symbols of two conflicting sides of the same personality. The book can be read on various levels - a thrilling mystery, an allegory/fable, a commentary on Victorian morality, a doppelganger tale, science fiction or horror story. Whatever one chooses to classify it as, the book is a riveting and unforgettable experience for readers of all ages.show more

About Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Born on November 13, 1850, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Robert Louis Stevenson traveled often, and his global wanderings lent themselves well to his brand of fiction. A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world. The year 1886 saw the publication of what would be another enduring work, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which was an immediate success and helped cement Stevenson's reputation. The work is decidedly of the "adult" classification, as it presents a jarring and horrific exploration of various conflicting traits lurking within a single person. The book went on to international acclaim, inspiring countless stage productions and more than 100 motion pictures.show more
