Description

This dark psychological fantasy is more than a moral tale. It is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution and criminality, and the secret lives behind Victorian propriety, to create a unique form of urban Gothic.

©2000 Robert Louis Stevenson (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

Very Worthwhile!

The well written original Jekyll and Hyde story by Robert Louis Stevenson is a far cry better than the movie and television versions that have been made.

The pace is slow, there are multiple points of view as there are many narrators and there is definitely a suspense even for those who already know the storyline.

Of course, its theme makes this story anything but superficial and there are multiple psychological and cultural implications to be drawn.

Unfortunately, the other stories included are not at all at the same level and it is no wonder that they are much less well known.

The Dark Human Heart

Effectively read by Michael Kitchen, this audiobook offers three compelling nightmarish tales by Robert Louis Stevenson. The first is Stevenson's classic tale of the dual nature inside all of us, of our inner conflict between good and evil: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It is a concise and powerful story whose unusual structure involves us more and more deeply in Jekyll's inevitable doom. The second tale, "The Body Snatcher," leads steadily to a nightmarish shock. The third tale, "Olalla," is a gothic look at evolution (devolution!) played out in an old aristocratic Spanish family. Kitchen reads all three tales with perfect pitch, pace, understanding, and expression.

Excellent performance of the classic tales

Would you listen to The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Other Tales of Terror again? Why?

I decided to get this book after coming across some references to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide in self-development literature. All 3 stories have a flavor of a psychological thriller, amended for time and place. For me, Dr Jekyll-Mr. Hide story is more about the personality destruction by addiction, then about the split/dual personality. The narrator is excellent, with the perfect blend of passion for the plot and characters, and impartiality of a story teller.

Good narration and liked the first story

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a good story and I always enjoy listening to Michael Kitchen narrating books. I didn’t care so much for the other stories that are part of this audiobook.

expected better

i bought this expecting it to be better - more eerie, more story but it's simple and slow and not scary at all. was disappointed in it and other stories though i normally love this kind of thing!
