Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Description

Dr Henry Jekyll has been obsessed since early manhood by the uneasy duality of good and evil he senses in himself and others, and is driven - to his peers' dismay - to tamper with the mysterious and transcendental side of science. The respected doctor becomes inexplicably silent and reclusive, while at the same time the terrifying Mr Edward Hyde begins to stalk the streets of London...At heart a chilling tale of the perils of ambition and hubris, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde reflects many of the preoccupations of Stevenson's own Victorian milieu - the dangers of a morbidly repressive society, and the post-Darwinian fear of man's beast nature.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Two comic-book veterans condense Stevenson's well-known psychological thriller into 40 pages in this slim graphic-novel adaptation. Following closely to the original, Grant's adaptation portrays the enigmatic Dr. Jekyll, as pursued by the lawyer Mr. Utterson. When Utterson hears rumors of a ruthless maniac named Mr. Hyde, he begins an investigation into Hyde's background. As he deepens his search, he makes the startling discovery that Jekyll and Hyde are actually the same person. Grant's reworking should serve as an adequate introduction for younger readers interested in Stevenson's work. Kennedy's illustrations, while brightly colored, are somewhat flat, with a consistently straight-on point-of-view; the overuse of this angle becomes tiring. As far as graphic-novel adaptations go, this one is rather pedestrian: There are no real standout features, though no glaring detractions. And not much popular appeal, either, unless classics adapted in this form are actively being sought. (Graphic fiction. 10 & up) (Kirkus Reviews)
