Mystery cases are everywhere in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  Mr. Utterson, a lawyer always seeking for justice, was talking with his friend, Mr. Enfield.  He mentioned something very odd to Mr. Utterson and shared a story with him. This story was about a very strange man who the people call Mr. Hyde.  Mr. Utterson at once recognized his name.  Mr. Hyde was the heir of his client, Dr. Jekyll.  Mr. Utterson had not seen or spoken to Dr. Jekyll in a long time, so this sudden appearance of Mr. Hyde strikes Mr. Utterson as peculiar.  Mr. Utterson felt it was his job to bring Mr. Hyde to justice for another crime and in this search, Mr. Utterson found secrets he had never even dreamed of.

I thought The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a very interesting book.  The secrets you uncover when reading this book are jaw dropping.  I think this book has it ups and downs.  For instance, the book can be very difficult to read at times, but in other parts, you don’t want to put it down.

I strongly recommend this book to ages 12 and up. It is great for boys and girls, as well as those who love a mystery.
