A relatively quick listen, this audiobook takes the listener into the tortured minds of two famous literary narrators. Derek Perkins narrates Stevenson's famous novella. He renders the excitement of the mystery of Mr. Hyde and gives voice to a range of characters from the servant Poole to the lawyer Utterson. He particularly captures Dr. Jekyll's desperation once the story moves into his voice. Alison Larkin's reading of "The Yellow Wallpaper" is haunting. Through careful intonation, Larkin helps the listener to grasp the main character's growing mental instability despite her certainty of her perceptions. Larkin finishes the audiobook with a letter from the author explaining why she wrote the story. Both Larkin and Perkins are outstanding narrators for these pieces.
