Discovered this in a box unloaded from our loft. I'd like to read it before releasing.

I'll happily confess that I read this mainly to be able to say, 'I've read it'. There are certain books which anyone who considers themselves an avid reader ought to have read, and this, I guess, is one of them. Although the story is familiar through countless retellings, it is interesting to read it as it was first conceived. It's a surprisingly brief tale told from a number of different points of view. Interesting, and reasonably readable.

Intriguingly, I suddenly got two requests for this book on the same day! Perhaps it was the two personalities of the same person asking for it? Anyway, Fluffy-Owl's request arrived first, and was sweetened with the offer of Salman Rushdie's 'The Satanic Verses' in return. On its way.

Journal Entry 4 by Fluffy-Owl from Chichester, West Sussex United Kingdom on Monday, February 27, 2006
Received today, thank you! Both myself and my friend Little-Nel requested it, as it's the next book our bookgroup are reading! I'll pass it on to her when I'm done, which should be soon as it's much smaller than I thought. The Satanic Verses will be on its way, soon I hope! Thanks again.

From the blurb:

"It is when Mr Utterson, a dry London lawyer, peruses the last will of his old friend Henry Jekyll that his suspicions are aroused. What is the relationship between upright, respectable Dr Jekyll and the evil Edward Hyde? Who murdered the distinguished MP, Sir Danvers? So begins Stevenson's spine-tingling horror story, the story of Dr. Jekyll's infernal alter ego, and of a hunt throughout the nocturnal streets of London that culminates in some dreadful revelations."

This was so incredibly short! But very good, better than I expected it to be. Quite a lot to disuss at our bookgroup!

Passed on to Little-Nel.

Journal entry by 'Fluffy-Owl's' alter ego perhaps?

Im afraid not MrMustard, but thankyou both for passing on the book!
Sounds like this will be a thrilling read!

Journal Entry 7 by Little-Nel from Nottingham, not specified not specified on Saturday, March 25, 2006
This was really enjoyable. I loved the way it was written from a mystery/detectivy type perspective at the beggining. That made it all the more intriguing, but i have to say the part written from Jekllys p.o.v was my favourite! So much tension and temptations - a really good portrayal of being pyschologically torn.
