“Dr.Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson
This time  I decided to read something with interesting plot and exciting language not only for pleasure,but in order to improve my reading and vocabulary skills.
So my choice was a book of a Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson "Dr.Jekyll and Mr Hyde”. This science fiction novel fits all these criteria.

It is when Mr Utterson,a London lawyer,peruses the last will of his old friend Henry Jekyll that his suspicions are aroused.What is the relationship between respectable Mr.Jekyll and evil Mr.Hyde?So begins Stevenson’s science fiction story, the story of Dr.Jekyll’s infernal alter ego,and of a hunt throughout the streets of London that culminates in revelation.

"Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde” originated in a dream of Stevenson once had.The focus is on the men personality and suggestion that evil is more powerful than good ensure its continued popularity over a hundred years on.

This book demands great attention and patience to understand all the details of the plot and relations among heroes.But it’s worth it.I will recommend this book to sci-fi lovers and people,who have already read some of Stevenson’s books.
