Why did I love this book?
This was a story I first read as a little kid after first reading Treasure Island by the same author. It is a narrative about the complexities of science and the duplicity of human nature. Dr. Jekyll is a kind, well-respected and intelligent scientist who meddles with the darker side of science, as he wants to bring out his 'second' nature which leads up to a twist at the end. Kind of like having an evil twin but not really. This book inspired a character in my story that is the backbone of the whole tale and wouldn’t really work without it.
