Robert Louis Stevenson brings the possibility of another side of person to life in his tale of "strange Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." He uses three narrators in the book to describe the tale of Dr. Jekyll, a respected, very "good" doctor who creates or as some would better describe it as bringing out the more Neolithic man in side him, in the form of Mr. Hyde. The most puzzling part of the book is ...
Jekyll’s body and they find an envelope from Dr. Jekyll addressed to Mr. Utterson, telling him to read Dr. Lanyon’s note and then his own, which is the enclosed confession. In Dr. Lanyon’s note he reveals that he had discovered that Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde were one person. Dr. Jekyll confesses in his written statement that he had wanted to separate the good and the bad points of himself and had came up with a drug, which make that happen. By turning into Mr.
Hyde, which was his evil side, he committed many crimes and escaped punishment for them. He could not help his actions. Over time, Mr. Hyde became stronger and soon he was becoming Mr. Hyde without the drug.
He managed to keep Mr. Hyde in control by taking the drug that transformed himself back into Dr. Jekyll, but soon he ran out of that drug. He wrote his confession as Dr. Jekyll, when he used the last drug.
He knew that soon he would turn into Mr. Hyde permanently. He did not care what would happen to Mr. Hyde. Opinion: I honestly loved this book. I really like mystery books but non of them are usually this good.
I think that this was just pure mystery. I liked how everything was kept such a secret until the last two chapters. I think the author of this book had a very good imagination. This book is just one of a kind. I also like this book because it kept me constantly interested, I always wanted to read and find out what was going to happen next. Overall, on a scale of one to ten (ten being the highest) I would give this book an eleven for being such a good mystery book..
