Happy Halloween, guys!
My goal to read a true classic associated with the holiday has been a complete success and I'm seriously considering turning it into a yearly tradition. I'm thinking maybe The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde?
To say this re-read has been a surprising (and if I'm being honest, a rather moving) experience would be an understatement. Where I used to find fear in this book, now I find unbelievable sadness - certainly I've changed a lot since GCSE History.
Mary Shelley is a true literary legend and it angers me that, up until recently, she was only thought of as the wife of a more talented man... but how could any person who has read even just one line of this evocative prose ever think that?
