The Jeckyll and Hyde relationship is one that has been read and watched and reread and rewatched and referred to and used as adjectives for years.

This is the type of Classic That can get you excited about the genre! Very strong use of sentence structures and dialogues; is spooky yet almost poetic in places which sounds ironic even to me while I write this. But it’s true, every word, period and exclamation point in this book is measured and has an impact. Similar but a more detailed example would be Dracula which had me surprised with the complexity in its writing.
What I liked most is that it takes place in basically a couple of streets and isn’t unnecessarily spread across locations. Very much focused on the characters and their relationship dynamics, a great example of how how Sci-fi isn’t just about, scientific fiction.
I was heavily invested in the tug of war between Jeckyll and Hyde and at multiple levels I felt it to be an artful social commentary by Robert Louis Stevenson that’s valid even today and well human nature can’t escape from itself until the end of time and this book’s core will always remain applicable to us.
A brilliant book and I can safely say, they don’t write books like these any more.
