    An ode to good and evil? A recognition of hidden conflicts in us all? A realistic nightmare that feels us falling, losing control, seeing our worst instincts come to life. Timeless.

    It has been decades since I read this. It is not like any of the films made from the story. You are given a view from the lawyer's investigation into the mystery for all but the last chapter where Jekyll explains his complete experience with Hyde. This is where the films get the foundation for the films. The best of the films is the one with Fredric March. Read the book, then check out the film.
