Book Reviews


Jekyll5 star

Thank you that was fun55

Mr. Scrooge Mcduck

Not for me2 star

Maybe great in its time, but not great for me as I like whodunnits.25


Intriguing book4 star

I like the story and the plot twist a lot and was interested to see how things would turn out in the end. However, the pace was a bit too fast for me to completely sink in the atmosphere. If anyone reading this doesn’t mind a fast paced mystery, check this book out.45

Joseph R. R.

Extremely good well written classic5 star

I throughly enjoyed every bit of this book. As you would expect a book of this age the vocabulary was very ancient, however it added a richness to the overall aesthetic of the novel. It was a classic that had been held up through time.55


Bad1 star

This book is not good15


A Wonderful Read5 star

As a young adult this book was quite a fascinating read. The issues brought up by this book are very much still relevant to today and its issues. The book even making its way into the English language as well. The only real problem that I had reading was the advanced vocabulary and grammar. Beyond that it was a smooth read that gripped me until the end. I don’t usually write reviews for books; however I had to for this one. Would recommend to anyone vaguely interested in this tale!55


Fantastic5 star

You can feel every emotion Jekyll has in this book. This book was an incredible adventure and I enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend this book to anybody that has the ability to read the old language well.55


A frightening but terrific classic4 star

I first read this book thinking it would be one of those many mediocre short novella type books which many exaggerations are made about, claiming “It’s the greatest book”. Boy, was I wrong. This was an amazing, frightening novel.45

Read it and shut5 star

It’s an old secret55

Purpah Jesus

Great5 star

Short story, easy to read and understand. I read a lot of old spooky stories and they definitely fall more under the stressful category than the scary one. I like a book that will make me sweat and this was one of them. Fast paced compared to many older stories.55
