The Last Kind Words

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson, Vladimir Nabokov, Dan Chaon Having not read this book for years, it's been a great book to rediscover, the tale of Dr. Jekyll and his new acquaintance Mr Hyde a repulsive almost neanderthal looking man who is never fully described.

Learning the story through letters from Jekyll's lawyer Utterson, his friend Dr Lanyon and finally from Dr Jekyll increases the tension in the story as we learn all about the infamous Mr Hyde.

Most people are aware of the basic story but reading the original is still the best way to feel the atmosphere created by Stevenson.
