Summary

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde grew out of a horrifying nightmare Robert Louis Stevenson had one night in Bournemouth, England, in 1886. "The Yellow Wallpaper" sprang from a catastrophic nervous breakdown Charlotte Perkins Gilman had six years later on the other side of the Atlantic following the birth of her daughter.  

Now these two haunting, iconic tales are brought together for the first time in this powerful classic audio exploration of madness and the duality of the human soul. Read by A-list narrators Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin, this rich audio experience also includes commentary by Alison Larkin and "Why I Wrote the Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.  

Derek Perkins is the Audie and AudioFile Earphones award winning narrator of more than 200 titles, including A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and AudioFile Magazine's Best Voice of the Year. Alison Larkin is a best-selling author of The English American and the AudioFile Earphones award-winning narrator of more than 200 titles, including The Complete Novels of Jane Austen. Title music by Gary Schriener and Curt Sobel.

A Top Notch production of two great classics

I've come to expect something different and thought provoking from Alison Larkin Presents classics and I got it again here. I first listened to Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin narrate A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas. It was accompanied by commentary written by Larkin, who is also a novelist, about both books. She does the same here and her commentary is then followed by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's article about why she wrote the Yellow Wallpaper which is fascinating. I was also very interested in the story behind Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Both performances as superb. I love the way neither narrator every goes too far. The tension is kept beneath the surface and is all the more chilling for it. Both narrators really understand the text and the nuances and that makes allllll the difference.

A haunting, powerful classic duo

When two of my favorite narrators pair up I take note. I LOVED Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin's reading of A Christmas Carol and the Night Before Christmas and they do a fantastic job again here narrating these two haunting classics. The commentary by Alison Larkin is fascinating, akin to the commentary she wrote for A Christmas Carol. This is a really really special recording. Both stories are easy to listen to in the hands of two master narrators. Bravo!
