The actual story of Jekyll and Hyde is different than what I expected it to be (LESS creepier, in fact!). It is told simply about a man who can, quite literally, change from one appearance to another, thus creating the effect of two persons. One admittedly better-spirited, and the other having a dark soul.
As classics go, this one is written very well. Certainly not a favorite of mine, but still it was worth the read, just to see what it was like.

Like Shelly's "Frankenstein", Stevenson writes a cautionary tale of the dangers of science. Dr Jekyll's desire to split the good and evil from man results in murder. Mr Hyde is at first fun for Jekyll, but gradually Jekyll understands the dangers of such a man. Hyde does not feel guilt, but Jekyll can.
Stevenson's narration is down right creepy in sections. This is a true classic to be read by anyone looking for a good scare.
