In Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a tale of mischief and selfishness unravels. It’s like this: Dr. Jekyll doesn’t like who he is, so one day he comes up with a potion that separates his good portion from his bad portion. That is when Mr. Hyde enters the scenario; he is Dr. Jekyll’s evil side. Mr. Hyde enjoys partying and having a good time, but Dr. Jekyll is a kindhearted doctor who everyone adores and loves .
Dr. Jekyll thinks that he can control Mr. Hyde but what Dr. Jekyll doesn’t know is that Mr. Hyde is slowly taking over and Dr. Jekyll becomes nothing more than a shell of his former self until one day there is only Mr. Hyde left.
In this tale, for example, Mr. Hyde gets himself into a lot of trouble by murdering a man and pushing little girls down for fun; Mr. Utterson, a lawyer and Dr. Jekyll’s friend, finds something odd about Dr. Jekyll and decides to keep an eye on him. One day the potion stops working for Dr. Jekyll, and he can’t revert back to his normal self; instead, he becomes Mr. Hyde: the terrible, hideous midget that no one likes In order to make matters worse than they already are , it turns out that there is both one doctor as well as another doctor who has been locked away in prison with him!
Dr. Jekyll writes a letter to Mr. Utterson asking him to destroy all of his possessions and give everything that he owns to Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jekyll has Dr. Lanyon, another one of his friends, write a letter to be opened only when Dr. Jekyll dies in case something happens to him. Dr. Jekyll eventually kills himself because he can’t stand being Mr. Hyde anymore.
This novel by R.L Stevenson is about Dr. Jekyll who creates a potion that turns him into the complete opposite of himself, Mr. Hyde. While in the body of Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll gets into a lot of trouble including getting a man killed and pushing down little girls for fun. Mr. Utterson, a lawyer and Dr. Jekyll’s friend, finds something peculiar about Dr. Jekyll’s behavior and decides to keep a close watch on him.
Jack believes it is better to stay hidden in his study on the upper floor, telling his staff that he is really ill and contagious, and asking them to avoid the room. The only way to communicate with one another is through Mr. Utterson’s notes. One day, Mr. Utterson and the butler break down Dr. Jekyll’s door after discovering that he was hiding there. To their astonishment, it turns out to be Mr Hyde holding a bottle of poison. He had killed himself before they could get inside the study to bust down the door.
Dr. Jekyll’s will states that everything is to go to Mr. Hyde and that if he dies before Mr. Hyde then Mr. Utterson is to destroy all of Dr. Jekyll’s papers. Dr. Jekyll had a secret drawer in his desk that was locked and the key was nowhere to be found. Mr. Utterson decides to wait until Dr. Lanyon, Dr. Jekyll’s old friend, dies before opening the drawer because Dr. Lanyon had suffered a stroke and Dr. Jekyll had left specific instructions that under no circumstances was anybody to open that drawer until after Dr. Lanyon died.”
The book comes to an end when Mr. Utterson reads a letter informing him that “only after Dr. Jekyll is no longer living should it be read.” When he first opened the envelope, there was a clear breakdown of who Mr. Hyde really was and how everything had happened. R L Stevenson’s work is fantastic. It’s because of his explanations, such as “the terrifying face of Hyde made my spine shiver,” that I have a mental image of a monster and what Mr. Utterson must have felt upon seeing for the first time Mr. Hyde.
Also, the ending was very unpredictable. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be on the edge of their seat the whole time.

I really felt as though I was playing a game on my computer when this book first came out, and all of the monsters and death imagery. It was about 10:00 p.m. at night, and a thunder storm had just broken out. I paused the game and got a chill running down my spine and through my feet. I was terrified, so I turned off my computer fast and hid beneath the blankets. It seemed like the attack of some beast who possessed hatred for me but took pleasure in it, which is why I never played that game again.
