The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson ( Book )
151 editions published between 1885 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 149 libraries worldwide
Ein alter Psychothriller über Schizophrenie: Die 1885 geschriebene Geschichte atmet den Geist ihrer Zeit, spiegelt Gedanken Darwins, Freuds und Nietzsches, und hat auch Dr. Frankenstein zum Vorgänger. Es passieren mysteriöse Dinge, sogar Morde, so dass Mr. Utterton der Sache nachgehen muss. Zwischen englischer Wohlanständigkeit und finsterer Unterwelt, zwischen emsiger Geschäftigkeit am Tag und finsteren Machenschaften in der Nacht entspannt sich die Geschichte und bringt Leserinnen und Lesern das Gruseln bei. Höhepunkt ist das lange Schlusskapitel, in dem sich Dr. Hyde zu einer ausführlichen Erklärung seines Falles entschliesst. Die guten und illustrativen Bilder geben informative Eindrücke zur Biographie des Dichters ebenso wie zum Londoner Hintergrund der Geschichte. Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer.
