The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
von Robert Louis Stevenson
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intriguing, 15. März 2000
This book was entirely engrossing. It kept my attention constantly. In many ways it can be paralelled to Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Grey". Jekyll and Hyde was an adept look at the nature of Victorian Society. It touched on such issues as the importance of appearance and the inevitable consequences of one's actions. It was incredibly compelling, and had no boring sections (like Dorian Grey did). An excellent novella and a very good read!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not too shabby., 15. März 2000
Contrary to some opinions I've come across, this book does NOT romanticize or promote a loss of morals. It is the exact opposite. Yes, Dorian becomes corrupted, but does the ending suggest that Wilde was making Dorian a hero for it? By no means. Dorian did not live happily ever after. It is a very moral book in that it clearly reinforces the principle of inevitable consequences of one's actions. Yes, at times it was a little slow (that is when the characters went into long life-philosophies)but all around it was very interesting and provided an insight into the late Victorian world in which Oscar Wilde lived. It addresses some key concepts such as appearance and its relation to virtue and the double-sidedness of one's character. Overall this book was not bad at all. A good read.
