Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Henry Jekyll is a pillar of the community. Edward Hyde is his antithesis. After Hyde becomes Jekyll’s houseguest, his friends grow concerned, for where Jekyll is virtuous, Hyde is evil epitomized. Alexander Spencer delivers a compelling performance of Stevenson’s shocking tale of human duality. He offers a variety of vocal characterizations, making Dr. Jekyll and his learned colleagues excellent examples of cultured and elegant nineteenth-century gentlemen. Spencer’s characterization makes Mr. Hyde a loathsome, brutal, diabolical fiend. Spencer starts slowly, inviting listeners into the story, and builds tension and horror as the sinister events unfold.

    I remembered this story from watching Wishbone (a children's tv show going through some of classic books) back in my childhood, and finally decided to read the real thing. The story I remember was a bit more interesting than the real book but it's still a decent read. There isn't a whole lot of character development so it's hard to really get attached to any of the characters. There was a lot of missed potential to delve into the theory of the two halves of man, into morality, into internal perception, which this book just barely touches on. Still, it's fun to listen to the other characters in their confusion and waiting for them to realize who Hyde really is. If you want a quick and easy listen, something a bit different than the average, I would recommend this book.
