Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (Signet Classics)

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson, Vladimir Nabokov, Dan Chaon A story based on the good and evil within each individual and how things can turn out if the evil side is let "out". The story was written in the typical style of the time (late 1800s) and while it was largely not told in a manner that I expected, from Jekyll or Hyde's point of view, it was still interesting. I think the brevity of the story allowed it to not become stale unlike many classics out there. I only wish Stevenson had been a bit more detailed in how he discovered the ability to "bring out" the evil side, perhaps he was avoiding science-type detail though.
