Summary

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde ranks alongside Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Dracula as one of the top horror stories to emerge from the late 19th Century. Film and stage adaptations have never been able to fully relate the agony and conflict that permeates the mind of Dr Jekyll, but the audio version read by Ian Holm adds an extra spine-chilling dimension to the original text by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Jekyll and Hyde

If it were seen by a reader in the 1800s they'd find it horrifying and mysterious. Nowadays it is book of superb literature, along with other narratives by great authors.

Great version. Better than Grant's version

Clearly spoken and great expression. Recommend for those doing GCSE and for listening in the car on holiday.

Chilling (and complete)

Although it doesn't say so, this edition of "Jekyll and Hyde" is unabridged; the only thing missing, as far as I can tell, are a couple of chapter titles. (The chapters themselves are intact.) The reading by Ian Holm is superb: dark and dismal, giving full voice to Utterson's frustration and Jekyll's despair. The coarseness and cruelty of Hyde's voice is especially chilling. This is by far the best of the four audio versions of this story I've tried.
