Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Henry Jekyll is a pillar of the community. Edward Hyde is his antithesis. After Hyde becomes Jekyll’s houseguest, his friends grow concerned, for where Jekyll is virtuous, Hyde is evil epitomized. Alexander Spencer delivers a compelling performance of Stevenson’s shocking tale of human duality. He offers a variety of vocal characterizations, making Dr. Jekyll and his learned colleagues excellent examples of cultured and elegant nineteenth-century gentlemen. Spencer’s characterization makes Mr. Hyde a loathsome, brutal, diabolical fiend. Spencer starts slowly, inviting listeners into the story, and builds tension and horror as the sinister events unfold.
