[AmazonClassics Kindle Version] A classic that still shines through its succeeding media variations
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2019
[AmazonClassics Kindle Version] Wanted to break in my new Kindle Oasis on a trip to AZ with my daughters and used Jekyll and Hyde as the first book. I've had the physical books in my shelves over the years but it never made it to the top of the queue. I'm glad I was able to dedicate some time to this great story that's been re-done over and over in every conceivable media type. The original story was a bestseller in its time and in the right (classicist) frame of mind the murder mystery horror combo shines as lawyer Utterson tries to unravel the dire interplay between his old friend Jekyll and the interloper Mr. Hyde. Kindle's built in dictionary came in handy again when dealing with archaic word usage, similar to when I read Poe. It was a quick read and highly recommended. j4.
