Hyde by Daniel Levine ´ Idence points to Mr Hyde Someone is framing him terrorizing him with cryptic notes and whisper campaigns Who can it be Even if these crimes weren't of his choosing can they have been by his handThough this classic has been often reinvented no one ever imagined Hyde's perspective or that he could be heroic Daniel Levine changes that A mesmerizing gothic Hyde tells the fascinating story of an underexamined villai Levine's version expands Stevenson's novella uite a bit It is very well fitted to the original imo Hyde is a dark destructive tale ultimately a very sad one tooAt the end Levine included some notes about Stevenson's original as well as some of his own comments includingMy interest was not in reconfiguring the premise but in returning to the original exploring inconsistencies of character and crafting a psychological model to explain Jekyll's plunge into self annihilation The original too is a murder mystery; why does Hyde kill Sir Danvers Carew The story says it is a coincidence Yet the murder is witnessed by a maid in an upstairs window who recognizes Hyde who had once visited her master Who is this master and why should Hyde visit him uestions yearn for answers For nearly 130 years Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has remained immovably on the fickle and often unfair shelves of classical literature an endurance no doubt due to these suggestive ripples in its surface the tantalizing hints of an underworld calling out for discoveryAnd Levine certainly does scrutinize the hinted underworld I think Stevenson would be pleased with this catastrophic chilling contortion of his charactersReaders beware though there is plenty of trigger worthy content in here related to child abuse physical sexual psychological rapeAn ominous truly terrifying tale Epub µ Hyde by Daniel Levine ô Daniel Levine

Daniel Levine ô Hyde by Daniel Levine Reader

Daniel Levine ô Hyde by Daniel Levine Reader E mind he hesitantly shares with Jekyll We spin with dizzy confusion as the potions take effect We tromp through the dark streets of Victorian London We watch Jekyll's high class life at a remove blurred by a membrane of consciousness We feel the horror of lost time the helplessness of knowing we are responsible for the actions of a body not entirely our ownGirls have gone missing Someone has been killed The ev I like posting reviews on release dates but this one drops ha on my mom's birthday and I refuse to soil ha her day with this book Instead the review will go live on the blog 317With my reviews I tend to follow a format Hyde however made me so angry and nauseous that I'm going to jump right into things I apologize for the uotes below I know they're gross but so is this book Avoid itI'm not alone Believe me I am not aloneI was so looking forward to having a great albeit creepy time with Hyde After all it's a reimagining of Jekyll and Hyde but one where Hyde is the hero and shown in a sympathetic light Unfortunately I didn't get that at ALL here Hyde is foul and disgusting fully willing to do Jekyll's dirty work for him and kill with no remorseThe chapter titles confused me They consist of four days yet the story lasts far longer than that I wasn't entirely sure what these days meant At first I thought perhaps that was how long Hyde was in control of the body but it uickly became apparent that wasn't the case; in one chapter we're with Hyde for over a monthYou would think Hyde would be a fascinating character right Sadly it was the minor secondary characters I felt for Jeannie a sixteen year old prostitute Hyde freuently visits who winds up moving in with him along with her younger sister and ultimately becomes pregnant At one point the sisters are cast out of the estate and that's it Jeannie wasn't even given the chance to tell Hyde about the baby I wanted about her Where did she go What happened to the baby Out of everyone Jeannie was the character I was the most drawn to and she was practically written out of the story and forgotten about Another character I found intriguing was one who wasn't even in the story Emile Verlaine Before the novel starts Jekyll experiences a bit of scandal while in France when a young boy under his care committed suicide Through a series of narratives we learn Emile had other personalities much like Jekyll These personalities were separate entities with their own characteristics and likes and dislikes Again however the 'screen time' wasn't enough for me and ended far too soon Hyde would have been a fairly lackluster story had I not noticed just how obsessed with fecal matter it was At first it was a bird dropping on Hyde's jacket This happened twice and two scenes seemed two too many It was then it became apparent that Hyde was a book about shitDr Petit said that L'inonnu mixed his own feces into the paint pg 211The fecal stink from Carew was still in my nostrils pg 225Numbly I picked at my buttons dragging off my sticking clothes I pulled down my trousers and drawers and stared at the filthy streaks down my legs a blast of stench making my cover my mouth and cough I had soiled myself pg 227We passed a horse pulled up to the kerb who lifted his tail and ejected a pile of green droppings that steamed like hot food pg 258He dropped the book into the pot he turned and unbuckled his trousers hunkered down and strained out a dry painful curl of movement He stood and looked woozily down at the soiled book pg 289Nope No thank you I wash my hands both figuratively AND literally if you please of this novel and it is with a hearty sigh of relief that I'm finally done with itDisgusting and unnecessary Hyde is a novel that I honestly cannot recommend To anyone At the end of the book is the original story The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and if you're interested in the inspiration if you want to call it that for Hyde you can easily find a copy for much cheaper at a used bookstore I hate writing negative reviews without anything positive to include but there was nothing positive to be said about this book It was less than 300 pages I suppose that's a plus It's really a shame; I love HMH's Young Adult books but this Adult novel was such a disappointment Do yourself a favor and avoid this one
