Dr jekyll and mr hyde

Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde

In the novel Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by R. L Stevenson, a story of

mischief and selfishness occurs. It's like this, there is a man called Dr.

Jekyll he doesn't like who he is so one day he thinks of a potion that makes his

good part split away from his bad part. That is when Mr. Hyde comes into the

picture, he is the bad part of Dr. Jekyll. Mr. Hyde likes to party have a good

time and cares less about others, but Dr. Jekyll is a caring Doctor whom

everybody adores and loves. Mr. Hyde gets himself into a lot of trouble in this

story for example he gets a man killed and pushes down little girls for fun Mr.

Utterson, a lawyer and a friend of Dr. Jekyll's, finds something peculiar about

Dr. Jekyll and decides to keep a close watch on him.

One day the potion stops working for Dr. Jekyll and he can't turn back

into himself , he stays in the body of Mr. Hyde, the dreadful, ugly, little

midget whom nobody likes. He decides to hide in his study upstairs and tells

his servants that he is really sick and contagious and tells them to stay away

from the study where hopefully nobody will see him. The only source of

communication is the notes he writes to his servants.

One day Mr. Utterson and the servant break down the door of the study to

find out if it really is Dr. Jekyll in that room. To their surprise it is Mr.

Hyde with a bottle of poison. He had committed suicide before they had a chance

to break down the door to the study.

The book ends when Mr. Utterson reads a letter which says "only to be

read when Dr. Jekyll is deceased" When he opened it, it had a precise

explanation of who Mr. Hyde really was and how everything happened.

R L Stevenson's novel is amazing. The reason being is the explanations

he uses like "the dreadful face of Hyde put shivers down my spine". Stevenson

really gave me a mental picture of a beast and how Mr. Utterson must have felt

the first time he saw Mr. Hyde.

This novel really reminds me of the time when I was playing a game on my

computer with all these monsters and images of death and hatred. I remember it

being about 10:00 p.m. at night when a thunder storm broke out. I paused and

felt the shivers going through my spine and out through my feet. I was horrified

I immediately shut off my computer and hid under my covers. I felt like I was

being attacked by some beast who had some kind of hatred for me, and took joy in

it. I never played that game again, it was to real to be true.

The concerns that arose from this book were: what if it was really

possible to split the good and the bad, how would the world be? Would the bad

be killing the good or the other way around? Would the society turn all bad and

have nothing but hatred in this world? That is how I sometimes feel when I see

the hatred going on in our society? Why can't we just get along with each other.

It wouldn't be that hard. If there wouldn't be any racism around I estimate

that there would be about 30% less hatred in this world . If I only had one

wish in this world I wouldn't wish for gold or a nice car, I would wish for

peace and caring in this world, because in the long run with no hatred everybody

would have everything like nice cars or lot's of money Love equals sharing.

Through this book I made a very important decision, I will try to be

nicer to people because I really do think that it all pays off in the end. I

would really recommend this novel to people who like mystery and suspense novels,

I really enjoyed this novel. It is also fun to read.

In a way I could compare myself to Dr. Jekyll, because I sometimes

really do get tired of who I am. I wish I could be older and do what I want to

do without first asking permission from my parents. I wish that I was better in

math and that I could do equations in my head without any difficulties. In a

way I can achieve all of that if I work harder for example on my math.

In conclusion, in the novel Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, mischief and

selfishness occurs which gets a young gentleman, by the name of Mr. Jekyll, in

lot's of trouble. If there would be more people like Dr. Jekyll in this world,

this place would be a total disaster.
