Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson - review
This book is one of the most gripping and fascinating books I have ever read. It is such a riveting thriller, that it is impossible to stop reading it even though it is a bit spooky. The story begins with the Will of Dr. Henry Jekyll where we learn that if he disappears or dies his fortune will be left to Mr. Edward Hyde.
Henry Jekyll and his alternative personality, Mr. He is the title character and a friend of main protagonist Gabriel John Utterson. Henry Jekyll feels he is battling between the good and evil within himself, thus leading to the struggle with his alter ego , Edward Hyde. He spends his life trying to repress evil urges that are not fitting for a man of his stature. He develops a serum in an attempt to mask this hidden evil. However, in doing so, Jekyll transforms into Hyde, a hideous creature without compassion or remorse. Jekyll has a friendly personality, but as Hyde, he becomes mysterious and violent.
Here, a saucer of milk spiked with moth balls and bug powder is enough to transform an ordinary, decent soul - the mouse - into a monster. After a few sips, Jerry swells into supermouse, terrorising Tom, who normally holds the upper paw. At the end of "Dr Jekyll and Mr Mouse", Tom tries lapping up the milk - only to be reduced to the size of a fly. The pair exit with Jerry in pursuit, wielding a swatter. The same storyline drives another cartoon of the s, "Mighty Mouse Meets Jekyll and Hyde Cat", though this time it is the cat who mixes a cocktail in the doctor's laboratory, changing from cute puss into a beast with fangs and fiendish claws.
