Whether it was describing how dreadful a character Mr. Hyde is, or discussing the relationships between Jekyll and the other characters. The book did a good job of explaining and making the reader interested. Plot Summary While experimenting in his laboratory, Dr. Jekyll concocts a potion that he believes will separate the good and evil of his body. The potion, however, simply turns him into a small, cruel man he calls Mr. Hyde. While out one night, Hyde tramples a young girl and is forced to pay for her injuries by a witness named Richard. Richard then discusses this event with his cousin, Mr. Utterson. Utterson already knows of Hyde as he is Jekyll’s lawyer, and Jekyll claims Hyde is his business partner. Hyde eventually gets into trouble with the police when he is seen beating to death a man named Sir Danvers Carew, with his walking stick. Half the stick s left behind and Utterson recognizes it as a walking stick he gifted to Jekyll. Utterson confronts Jekyll, who shows him a note he says was written by Hyde. But since Hyde's handwriting is nearly the same as Jekyll’s, Utterson believes Jekyll forged the letter. For two months following this, Jekyll reverts to his normal self and starts having visitors again. But in early January, he begins to act strange again. Jekyll sends a letter to a former scientist companion, Hastie Lanyon, asking to get certain chemicals from his laboratory. Jekyll cannot receive them himself as the police have his lab surrounded. After Hastie returns to his house with the chemicals, Hyde visits his home and makes a potion with the chemicals, which he then drinks, transforming him into Dr. Jekyll. He then explains everything to Hastie who dies of shock a few days later. Before Hastie died, he wrote a letter to Utterson explaining Jekyll’s odd behavior. Utterson then visits Jekyll who is very distraught because one of the ingredients for his potion ran low, and he no longer has any way to turn himself back to normal, as he can randomly turn into Hyde at any time. Jekyll locks himself in the back room of his laboratory, and when Utterson breaks the door down he finds Jekyll dead, but in the form of Mr. Hyde. Recommendations I recommend this book to anyone interested in classic literature. The book can get overly detailed at times but never will go over the readers head. Anyone who enjoys books that discuss psychological themes will enjoy this read. Characterization Mr. Utterson Throughout the book, Mr. Utterson seems trusting and caring, but by the end, he becomes somewhat emotionless. He no longer feels sorrowful for Jekyll. Utterson may have been kind and loyal, but he realized that Jekyll’s downfall was his own fault. Dr. Jekyll Dr. Jekyll is perceived by many as a kind man, but he also tends to give into some of life’s temptations. He spent most of his early life trying to suppress these urges, as they didn’t fit a man of his stature. At the end however, he began to make several excuses for himself on why he gave into his inner urges. Mr. Hyde There are many instances in the book where Hyde is described as a physical embodiment of cruelty. People say that looking at his face could make your blood freeze. Hyde grows more and more aggressive as the story continues.

    An easy read to get me back into the flow of reading a book. Spent far too long over it, however, finished and enjoyed! Nice adapted classic for younger readers.
