(4.6 stars; 412 reviews)

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the original title of a novel written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson that was first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll and the misanthropic Edward Hyde. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was an immediate success and is one of Stevenson's best-selling works. Stage adaptations began in Boston and London within a year of its publication and it has gone on to inspire scores of major film and stage performances. ( Summary by Wikipedia ) (3 hr 11 min)

This actually helped while I was studying this for my GCSE text at school. Also, the way that it is read- the different expressions for characters and the natural pauses of speech- helped to make this book even more effective and easier to understand! I think I might listen to it again...


(4.5 stars)

I like this book although Bob's voice is kind of boring I wasn't really expecting to find this book my mom wanted me to listen to this she said it was a really good book so I decided to listen to it and it turned out really nice but Bob's voice is really good at making people talking like it isn't one boring voice the whole entire book he can change his voice it is like he has a narrative voice and other voices it is a really nice book

A thriller classic.

I can't imagine the impact this had when it was new. The Jekyll/Hyde trope maybe commonplace nowadays, but when this was released it was a heck of a twist. A scientist presumably housing a monster turns out to be the monster. it explores man's duality. Our good and bad side, which biblically speaking would be a side-effect of living in a fallen world. Worth a read.

Mr. Neufeld does it again!

(5 stars)

Mr. Bob Neufeld once again delivers a wonderful ability to read and maintain the suspense of this classic. I'm looking forward to hear more classics read by him. He brings to life the characters on the page and the story presented by wonderful writers.

Really captivating

(5 stars)

I enjoyed Bob’s reading of the book very much. The first parts were quite boring and confusing with no explanations whatsoever, but the last part ties everything together quite well. I enjoyed the message of the book quite a lot as well.


(5 stars)

Don't dabble with the dark side. An allegorical tale of man's eternal inner conflict, the author produces a gripping horror story. Bob Neufeld' voice and style are the perfect blend for this story; he rates more than 5 stars.

Great book, great reader

(5 stars)

The reader has an incredibly soothing voice and reads the book at a pace that makes it easy to follow despite the complex vocabulary and intricatw synthax. I look forward to hearing more audiobooks by the same reader!

Must Read

I am 27 and have heard the metaphor of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" all my life but never had I actually read the book. It was a very good listen and I was not disappointed.
