The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde* Spoiler!!!!

Postby Godzilla Forever » Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:49 am

Has anybody heard of this book? I just read it, and it's pretty cool, if not sad, since Dr. Jekyll kills himself to dispose of Mr. Hyde.

So, did anyone else read this book?

heard of it, and heard the general jist of the story so many times it's bored me silly....not to mention Pop Culture sometimes employs it, as is the case with Hannah-Barbera, Warner Bros. cartoons, Looney Toons, Tweety and Sylvester in particular...then you have the movies revolving around it, like The Nutty Professor...

haven't read the actual book though...

Don't post spoilers like that, or at least put a warning at the start of the topic or the title.

Nope, heard lots about it though. As KP said, it's fairly prominent in Pop culture. Anologies are drawn to it whenever any character or person has some sort of other half.

It sounds quite good.
