Strange Case of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde
First sentence: Mr. Utterson, the lawyer, was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile;
Premise/plot: What if the 'dark' inside you was fully released and realized?!
My thoughts: What an interesting book to read after reading John Owen's Overcoming Sin and Tempation! Dr. Jekyll has a secret 'dark' side that he struggles to keep concealed. Only a few come to learn his BIG, BIG secret: he has found a way of satisfying his dark side in the personality of MR. HYDE. But the more he gives into temptation and becomes Mr. Hyde, letting Mr. Hyde loose in the city and country, the harder the struggle is to return to being Dr. Jekyll. There is a battle going on over his body--if you will--but it isn't a battle of good versus evil, just slightly evil with totally evil.
This is a very short read that is easy to recommend.
