"HE WAS ONE OF US"

Advantages: fantastic drawings, and a heart rending storyline
Disadvantages: lots of swearing, some of the worst kind, bit violent

This is no comic book for children. Like most Milligan/McCarthy collaborations, it teeters somewhere between boggling, hilarious and gut wrenchingly sad. I’m going to be using quotes from the novel, and they contain language of ‘an adult nature’ so if tha ...

The Strange Case of Katie Price & Jordan

Advantages: Interesting, raises some questions
Disadvantages: Long winded, predictable, doesn't live up to the hype

The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde was first published in 1886, and is surprisingly short for such an acclaimed book - it has only 88 pages! I read it in school as part of my English Literature coursework and I was expecting it to be pretty good - ...

The Werewolf Cometh

Disadvantages: None whatsoever that I can think of.

Jekyll and Hyde - A tale of two men in one body

Advantages: Sometimes interesting, grotesque
Disadvantages: gets boring

...Stevenson tells us a lot about Victorian society in this book. The upper and middle classes were often superficial and hypocritical with regard to their morality. They thought it was acceptable behaviour to appear respectable on the surface, while at the ...

Something of a classic

Advantages: Ahead of its time
Disadvantages: Difficult to read because of old language

...This book is a true classic. One of the most awe-inspiring books possibly ever written. I'm completely astounded at the futuristic views Stevenson had and how he could portray his views in such a cunning way. Stenvenson was extremely frowned upon for writ ...
