This is a book I've been wanting to read for years. I think most of us are somewhat familiar with the tale, even if we haven't seen a film version or read the book as it's now seeped into the subconscious of society. What surprised me was that it wasn't a first-person narrative as I was expecting an exploration of the psychology of Jekyll and his alter-ego. I was hoping for a little more action and angst. Still, I enjoyed Stevenson's writing style and I'm glad I've finally gotten around to this classic.
