I don’t write reviews as such. I believe one needs some artistic skills in order to write reviews. I simply state opinions on things I have read or watched. And I am not very careful about spoilers, so I am telling you from now, that there is SPOILERS ALERT in all my opinions on books or movies. I always imagine, that I am discussing them with friends, after we have seen a movie together or read the same book.
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was supposed to be my Halloween treat for 2019, but I only read it in November, closer to Thanksgiving.
It is a short novella, but it took me a long time to read it. I just couldn’t push myself. A reading, that takes around an hour more or less, took me 3 or 4 days to finish it.
I just felt a heavy feeling about this work of fiction. It wasn’t going smoothly with me.
