The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Robert Louis Stevenson, read by Martin Jarvis, Blackstone Audio, unabridged, three CDs, 3 hrs., $19.95 ISBN 978-1-4417-1170-0
Martin Jarvis delivers a gripping reading of Stevenson’s classic. When Gabriel Utteron discovers that the sinister Mr. Hyde has moved into the home of his friend Dr. Jekyll and stands to benefit from his will, he becomes concerned and enlists the help of their mutual friend, Dr. Hastie Lanyon. Things go from bad to worse: Jekyll withdraws further from his social circle; Hyde’s criminal sprees culminate in murder; and Utteron and Lanyon fight to save their friend and unravel the mystery of Hyde’s origins and disappearance. Jarvis’s pacing is excellent, his characterization spot on, and his renditions of Jekyll and Hyde perfect; he creates two distinct characters that illustrate the story’s exploration into the duality of human nature.
