The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyle and Mr. Hyde

Ever allowed hype to affect your opinion on something. I have. It kept me from reading a book titled The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyle and Mr. Hyde. You see, I tend to avoid the horror genre because I frankly cannot handle being but so scared. I have still only read maybe two Steven King novels. No, three. They were The Green Mile, The Stand, and It. I will save my thoughts on them for their own blogs. I will only say one I read and will read multiple times, One I might read one more time, maybe two, and the last I will only read to refresh myself so I can write a review by and by, but never again.

Well, when I say that the take I am reviewing now did not live up to the hype, that is not necessarily a bad thing. It was not nearly so scary as I feared it would be. It was, to be honest, also not as good as I hoped it would be. I’m afraid I found it a bit prosy, a bit slow. But there were some great bits of suspense in it, and the mystery was engaging. Plus I found myself getting interested in the lives of the people in it. The ending was completely satisfying, and if I read it again, it will be for that.

I give it a solid worth re-reading. Enjoy this short, suspenseful read and let me know what you think of it. As Dr.Wolf would say, I look forward to hearing from you
