"This production is first rate Horror Audio." (Audio World)
"The subject is endlessly interesting, and rich in all sorts of provocation, and Mr. Stevenson is to be congratulated on having touched the core of it...a masterpiece of concision." (Henry James)
These classics are that for a reason. I found the thought provoking content behind the plot substantial; must listens when you get a chance.
Once again, I take Hollywood to task. Just as they did with FRANKENSTEIN, they have turned DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE into a horror story and missed the whole point of Robert Lewis Stevenson's classic of good vs. evil. There is so much more to this story, so much psychology and so much humanity. The only possible way to appreciate this classic is to approach it the way it was intended: to be read.
Ralph Cosham did a superb job portraying both characters and making the transition from one to the other so seemingly effortlessly. I will be anxious to hear more of his work in the future.
My most compelling reaction to this book was sadness for the plight of Dr. Jekyll and the misuse of this story by the media...mainly Hollywood.
I do hope more people will read and appreciate this study in mental instability and one man's plight at being caught between the forces of good and evil.
