Would have been such a good read if it wasn't so iconic. The entire plot resolves in discovering Dr. Jekyll is actually his mysterious friend, Mr. Hyde; who knew?
Stevenson and his idea of morality is intriguing to me though. ( )

These stories are classics. Mr Stevenson lived in a time when industrialization was just getting started - old world crafts were switching over to big machines, able to churn out more items in considerably less time. Its also the time of scientific curiosity. Scientists studied everything - with the hope of finding out what makes humans tick. With Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a scientist has discovered how to switch off human conscience, giving in to the base emotion of lust, and immediate gratification.

A number of stories sit on gothic horror- for example Markheim, and Thrawn Janet, even The Body-Snatchers play into this. These stories play on the fears of the time, robbery, science gone wrong/against God, even body snatching. And with any good story, the backdrop of these stories are just as important as what is happening. ( )

Other than, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this collection of short stories were such a surprise to me. I had no idea this author wrote suspense/classic horror/Gothic type fiction. I liked most of them. You can find a complete review on my blog.

I think by now most people are familiar with the lead story in this collection, the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Knowing the general plot of the story without having read it before spoiled it a bit for me, I found it neither suspenseful nor that well written enough to make it interesting.

This is a collection of stories, notes and commentary. The table of contents says there are 6 stories, but here are really 8. Of the 8, I found the 3 that make up "The Suicide Club" the most interesting. All together the longest story in the book, it seemed to be better written and just flowed better, despite some occasional odd jumping around. Two of the others, "Thrawn Janet" and "Markheim", I really didn't enjoy much at all. Perhaps Stevenson should be better known for his YA/adventure fiction, rather than his horror/gothic fiction. ( )

In the title story, Mr. Utterson, a lawyer, is walking with his cousin when he hears a strange tale of a Mr. Hyde, who apparently has no conscience. Since he knows from his legal work that a respected man, Dr. Henry Jekyll, has written a strange clause into his will leaving all his property to this strange and unlikable man, Utterson determines to get to the bottom of what influence Mr. Hyde has over his friend. This story has become so much a part of our psyche that it's hard to approach it without already knowing the ending. I think I would've liked it even better if I could have somehow escaped spoilers, yet the ending lines weren't any less poignant for all that. The "science" of it all would be complete balderdash today, yet the story still explores the nature of good and evil and the heart of man.

The other short stories did not resonate with me as much, but they are still worth a read for anyone interested in Victorian Gothic and horror stories. Stevenson can definitely create a mood, and he writes some very unsettling stories. ( )

Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable.

All things therfore seemed to point to this; that I was slowly losing hold of my original and better self, and becoming slowly incorporated with my second and worse.
