I was scrolling through my ridonculously long TBR list to find a few things to request from the library. In doing so I realized I had a few titles which dealt with the characters from this book but that I couldn't recall ever having read the original. It wasn't on a required reading list nor did I ever take a class on Victorian-era Gothic Horror novels, so I decided to rectify this gap in my classics. One more checked of the last.

4thhouseontheleft I love gothic novels, and this is a good one! My favorite is Dracula. Have you ever watched Penny Dreadful? It is set during the time period and features a few gothic novel characters. 4mo
ralexist @4thhouseontheleft - I love Penny Dreadful! Eva Green should have received some award or acclaim for her role. So so good 🙂 4mo
batsy Before I read this for a class in college years ago I thought it was going to be quite silly, but it's a pretty brilliant book 👍🏽 4mo

I felt this story didn‘t really live up to expectations. It was a quick read, I just didn‘t feel any connection to the story. The only part that was worth reading was the last chapter. It was overall alright. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #DrJekyllAndMrHyde #RobertLouisStevenson #book #books #bookmark #bookmarks #bookmarket #bookmarkets #bookmoment #bookmoments #bookmovie #bookquote #bookquotes #bookqueen #bookquirk #quote #Classics #Fiction #Horror #ScienceFiction ❤️❤️

Oh my goodness @Natasha.C.Barnes really outdid herself with her amazing book box! I haven't read any of these books except for one if the Poe stories and the bookmarks are amazing!!!

Natasha.C.Barnes Oh yay! I really hope you find them interesting! And even if you end up passing them along, they come with matching bookmarks so that's always fun. I'm liking the idea that a book deserves its own bookmark these days. (edited) 2y

I saw a great interpretation of Jekyll &a Hyde yesterday, performed by National Youth Theatre of Great Britain by Evan Placey (Girl Like That, Consensual)

Awesome, feminist rendition, with fabby modern twist! I'd recommend for any one in London! Would be great to hear what other people think of the twist! 🎭

Library haul, part two. Actually I got a library card to cut down my book buying, but since they have a charity shop in the basement I always buy something there 😅 1 Euro for a book is just a great deal.

minkyb That is hilarious (in a good way, of course)! 3y
HeatherBookNerd Those are some of my favorites! Little Bee and Curious Dog are both completely fantastic. 3y
Velvetsun I actually just renewed my library card to try and cut back on my book buying, too. But my library has such a pitiful selection I have to put everything on hold...and I'm not one for patience. Lol 3y

Maike @DuckOfDoom 😄 in the library you have to go up to the third floor, they are hidden in the Languages section, right behind the information counter there. If you want YA books, they are in the basement in the Hoeb4U, at the end of every shelf. 3y

3/5 Good, but perhaps not as much action as I was expecting. It's amazing how, over the years, countless adaptations have skewed our understanding of the characters and plot so far away from the original text. #Classics #ShortStories

I had to read this for an English class one time and I never actually did🙈 I found this gorgeous hard copy though, and the opening pages are super pretty. I remember writing an in depth essay on Frankenstein (mind you, I HATE Frankenstein with a passion. Whiny male characters ugh) so I immediately assumed this one would be the same. Maybe I'll actually read it one day. Has anyone here read it? What did/do you think of it?

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a really good read. It's super short, and (without spoiling anything), knowing the famous twist, I think, actually made the book scarier and that much more intense. I remember reading with my blankets pulled half-way up my face which had gone completely pale. It was during the climax that my mom burst into my room, and I was *this* close to yelping and throwing a pillow at her.

So yeah, this book has been through a lot. Took it with me when I first read it on my graduation trip to an archaeological excavation in Ireland over 20 years ago. Have now re-read all 3 novels in it through the last 3 years for my book club. Must say Jekyll was the one I have enjoyed the most this time around. It is so so current. Actually reminds me a lot of some of Stephen King's short stories. Great suspense! Highly recommended.

I had actually never read this before and the popular conception of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde makes this book a bit of a let down. It's framed as more of a mystery--closer to a Sherlock Holmes story than Dracula, for example. Knowing the twist ending makes it a more interesting read, I think, because it forces you to question Dr. Jekyll's friends responses and moves to protect Jekyll much more, but the twist isn't shocking when you know it's coming
