HENRIETTA & ELEANOR A Contemporary Retelling of Jekyll and Hyde

by | Read by Holliday Grainger, Carla Mendonça, Clive Mantle, Miranda Raison

Audio Theater • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Spurrier reimagines Stevenson's classic tale, modernizing the narrative for this audiobook. The story involves two female leads flanked by friends and colleagues who are attempting to unravel the mystery of their strange behavior. While listeners will need to suspend disbelief if they are already familiar with the story of Jekyll and Hyde, this is, nonetheless, a solid retelling with quick pacing and atmospheric narration heightening jarring, bizarre circumstances. A full cast rounds out the life of Jekyll as her friends discuss her, read her correspondence, and have interactions with the young doctor and her sinister counterpart. While all the actors involved work to create this chilling story, some of the strongest moments involve the confessions of Henrietta, portrayed by Carla Mendonça, and the unnerving telltale laughter of Eleanor, portrayed by Holliday Grainger. An enjoyable listen for fans of dramatic re-creations and science fiction. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
