3 Stars

This was actually better than I thought it'd be, considering I don't usually like classics. It was more mild than I was expecting (apparently I've seen too many exaggerated references), but also more modern, at least in the sense of being able to relate to the characters and their motives/feelings/actions. The old timey classic's even got jokes! "If he be Mr. Hyde, I shall be Mr. Seek." And Utterson (the protag) genuinely wanted to help his friend when he thought he was in trouble which made him likeable to me. So although I can't say I loved it, I did enjoy it for the most part.
