This year I’m creeping up again the ladder of horror and madness which has long ago proven to be a special favorite of mine, with last years choice of “Frankenstein” which I loved.
This year I picked “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” for the National Novel Reading Month 2014. If you don’t know that NaNoReMo is, it’s the aim that throughout the span of one month ( which John Wiswell graciously pointed out this year is March), you pick and read a classic novel, with that classic novel being whatever your definition of classic is, I suppose. Just pick something you’ve always wanted to read and haven’t till now.
I went through all my classical novels I hadn’t read and realized the majority of them are not in English which is not that much of a problem, but still it’s slightly uncomfortable for the reviews and the thought process during reading. So then I searched through what little classics I had in English and amongst them on paper I have “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. Perfect!
It’s a small novella, and it would hardly take a whole month to read, but combined with other books I’m reading it fits wonderfully to the “schedule”.
So here it goes a horrific, thrilling reading that will surely spawn chilling reviews!
Good luck to everyone participating!
