I'm very glad I did. It's both simpler, and more complex, than a tale of one man split between his higher and his baser selves. The telling is a combination of memior, and epistilary. Jeckyll's solicitor tells the story, including reading out some documents, including Dr.
The Strange Case of Dr.
Hyde is a very interesting book, a book that experiments with perspective, and narrative. For the most part, the book is narrated by a lawyer by the name of Mr. It then transitions to a letter, then a narrative in the form of a diary as it transitions thorough chapters.
The story and plot would strike many as simple, and incomplete. However, this only means that the reader is not fully appreciating the book.
The climax is the point when it starts to be revealed to the reader the Mr. This point is only reached when the book is about to end, hence forth there are no actual adventures afterwards with Mr.
This short end is one of he best things about Dr. It does not end in a happy ending, nor do the problems in the story have any solutions. Hyde is one of the few books where a story is actually told simply to communicate the tale.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as me! This book was also my first book about a split personality and mental diseases. I wasn't really into these kind of topics and I have to admit a bit scared if it was too much for me to read about such a thing.
You see I always have a picture in my head of what I hear or read and mostly dream about stuff I've read during the day, too.
But I found it surprisingly interesting to read about the inner conflicts of someone with a split personality. Also, I liked who the story drew a clear line between his good and evil side by making him two persons for the inside and outside!

But this book probably got me to look for other books dealing with the same topics from now on. So it was a great experience which I can recommend to others who want to try out new genres or read about other topics than their used to.
