Mr Utterson and Dr Jekyll are friends, also Dr Jekyll is client of Mr Utterson. One night Mr Utterson captured Mr Hyde when he was trying to kill a woman. The will of Dr Jekyll said that all his possessions will be for My Hyde. Mr Utterson is worried because doesn’t trust Mr Hyde. One night, Mr Hyde killed a man with a stick and broke it into two parts. One of them hidden in his house and so Mr Utterson found it. Utterson and Jekyll spoke and Jekyll said that Hyde disappears. One night they were dinning joins and were very happy. Some weeks later Dr Lanyon died and gives a box to Utterson. Jekyll doesn’t want to speak with anything, but his voice was strange. Finally, Poole and Utterson broke the door of the laboratory while Hyde was saying “Nooooooo”. Hyde drank a poison and died. After the death of Hyde, Utterson opened the Lanyon’s box and read a letter. The letter explained how Hyde and Jekill transformed.

Personal opinion I like this book a lot. It’s very amazing and interesting because you don’t expect what will pass with My Hyde or why Lanyon died sudden. The introduction is a little bit boring but at the middle begins to start the amazing things.
