Hyde by Daniel Levine

Growing up most of us have read the Strange Tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.  This is the Hyde’s side of the story of what really happened. 

Mr. Levine takes us on the journey of what Hyde felt during the time that Dr. Jekyll was doing his experiments and how he was living his life and not knowing what was fully going on when he “disappeared” for a while.  It was an interesting read and it made me want to go back and re-read Dr. Jekyll and then read this again to see the differences and similarities.  It was a nice change to read the story from the other point of view of a main character and see that he wasn’t really a monster.  Through the journey it was interesting to read how one must fight their own demons and how another character might react to similar situations.
