I thought Dr. Jeyll And Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson was an excellent read. I loved the way Stevenson wrote it--giving nothing away in the beginning and letting the mystery unravel only at the very very end. It would have been fun to actually predict along the way like Utterson. However, like almost everyone else, I knew the plot before I had read the book. Nevertheless, there were still surprisingly a lot of things I had not known about before. Also, Stevenson has a lot of "silences" in the book, even at the end of the story. This leaves it up to us to use our imaginations and ponder on the unexplained aspects of the book. Overall, it is interesting and worth reading.
