I finished off #DeweysReadathon by listening to the audiobook of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, an excellent pre-Hallowe'en read that is atmospheric and suspenseful.

I managed only 5.5 hours this time around, but I'm still glad I participated. I've been doing this readathon for over 10 years now and always look forward to it. Many thanks to the organizers of this terrific event! @DeweysReadathon

Although this book is a little short and confusing and written in the contemporary Victorian language, this book is indeed very fascinating and has earned its right to be the timeless classic that it is.

Iconic classic, about the internal struggle between good and evil. Once evil is unleashed, it was hard to put the leash back on. I had a lot of fun reading this one. For fun, I decided that Mr. Hyde should be a Scottish Highlander. Available wherever audio books are sold.

I listened to this on the way to Cleveland & finished this morning on the way back. It was ok, but I feel like I zoned out in parts. Might read a physical copy at some point.

Stevenson managed to cram a lot into these 66 pages, and literary types continue to analyse Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde to death. If you assume you‘re familiar with the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and you don‘t need to read the original, you‘re really missing out. I‘ll definitely read it again, its allegory is evergreen. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/strange-case-dr-jekyll-mr-hyde-robert-louis-...

Over 20 years after I first picked this up and.. wow .. what a difference a couple of decades makes. I found subtext galore! Lol ..Revelations about the duality of human nature, repression and sociopolitical castes that I completely missed when I was a kid. Oh.. and no surprise Stevenson is as breathtaking and brilliant a writer as he ever was. 5/5

Classic horror story suffers from overfamiliarity

"I feel very strongly about putting questions; it partakes too much of the style of the day of judgment. You start a question, and it‘s like starting a stone. You sit quietly on the top of a hill; and away the stone goes, starting others; and presently some bland old bird (the last you would have thought of) is knocked on the head in his own back garden and the family have to change their name."

Pick I guess? New to Litsy and having a difficult time with the rating system so far... But I want those sweet internet book points so here we are. This book was kind of surprisingly affecting for me. Also dual-nature based horror is very on brand for me as a Gemini 😂

This was a 3.5 star read for me. I liked it but I enjoyed “The Bottle Imp” more. I think exposure to this story in film & TV ruined it a little for me. Plus I didn‘t like the way the tale was told. It was underwhelming.

When I post non-book related pictures on Litsy, I try to make sure there's a literary tie-in. If you know me, you know that my family is quite involved in theatre. Proud of my hubby taking on his first musical - Jekyll & Hyde! Here he is (left) in one of his ensemble roles as Jekyll's father. I have loved hearing stories of the cast developing character traits by reading the book!

More bookish television to recommend. . . This is an incredibly clever modernization that came out in 2007. It‘s the creation of the brilliant Steven Moffat (Coupling, Doctor Who, Sherlock). James Nesbit and Gina Bellman are resplendent. Given this is the first of October I thought I drag it out for a visit. Check it out if you are a fan of the book and not all precious about modernizations.

This is a fun, short, dark read. I first read it in college and still have my highlighted and annotated copy. I find the exploration of the darkness within ourselves to be fascinating.

The audiobook, narrated by Richard Armitage, is extremely well done. Richard can read the phone book, for all I care, to be honest, just as long as he keeps talking.

Book 5 done for #24in48

MizLit One of my favorites to teach! I pair it with Freud‘s concept of Ego (also happening around this time) as well as explore the role of women in the story. So much is going on below the surface. 1y

I can only imagine what it would have been like to read this without knowing the twist! Supposedly fueled by a cocaine binge (tuberculosis treatment), Stevenson cranked out both the first and second drafts in only six days. After a nightmare prompted him to write the story either he or his wife threw it in the fire causing him to start again! Then the grim little penny dreadful turned into his most well-known work ever. Such is life.

“It was on the moral side, and in my own person, that I learned to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both...”
