I went into this book knowing that it shouldn't be like any of the terrible adaptions on television, I was partly wrong. Indeed, the horrible Mr. Hyde was not the giant grotesque monster I saw on tv, nor was the story very close to anything they tried in Hollywood. The similarity between the book and televisions, Jekyll/Hyde, was that I was not amused with either. The concept and the idea of the story is amazing and beautiful, a man fighting between good and evil within himself, and the idea of a man changing into a strong monster and causing havoc before changing back to the weak scientist. I am terribly intrigued by the said above, what I wasn't pleased with, was what I read. The issue I would say would be the writing, he preformed the story extremely well I thought, but the way he wrote, at least in this novel, made me quite disturbed. His writing was a form between H.G Wells, and a less talented Oscar Wilde. I for one was put off by it, and made it quite difficult to read....Timothy~
