A mysterious case indeed
i have been reading this for a while in class, and it is very much gothic in its nature, with some wonderful descriptive language and passages. You pretty much have to read it with a large dictionary at your side! In any case, I would suggest this for a more mature palette of reading taste, even though many boys like the idea of taking potions and turning into a monster. Not for the light hearted reader, this is one of those tales that twists and turns right up until the very end. (it can even fool those who think they already know the story. Aka me!)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is really a kind of gothic literature. It has a foggy backgrounds, and full of deaths, people who were killed by Mr. Hyde. Mr. Hyde is like a beast, is like a demonic creature created by Dr. Jekyll by his own self, he transfers his self into Mr. Hyde who is evil, and he changes his appearance by making a poison that can control your evil side. Dr. Jekyll is a trustful, humble, kind and social man, who kills himself when he knew that he was Mr. Hyde who kills people, who is really evil. He can't control his evil side anymore, that's why he kills himself at the end.

This book is wonderful. I had to read it for my age group and the beginning seemed a little dull for me, but towards the end of the book I was truely interested in the works of Stevenson. It is a good example of life through a fictional story. As I was reading it I really seemed like I was relating to all the characters in the book. It's a great read!
