    1. This is a retelling of the infamous classic text, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Seven years have passed, since the events of the original tale. Jekyll is presumed dead and his lawyer and good friend Gabriel Utterson is set to take over his prior home and fortunes, in just a few days. But then Jekyll returns. Only Utterson does not believe that this is the case. He believes an impostor is posing as his former friend and has succeeded in fooling their entire social circle of this gu [...]


    2. Despite the overall setting and language of the book feeling right as a follow up to Stevenson's original, I am too unsettled by the author's mistreatment of Utterson to really get behind it. Before, the reader stayed with Utterson for the majority of the book, experiencing the increasingly strange occurrences through his eyes, and we have no reason to disbelieve his account thanks to the final evidence for the Jekyll/Hyde coming in the form of two corroboratory letters. In fact, it is part of t [...]


    3. Reviewed on whisperingstoriesBeginning Seven years after the ending of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson, in which Mr. Hyde was found dead, meaning that Dr. Jekyll must of been dead too, as they were one and the same. A man claiming to be Dr. Jekyll has taken up residence in his old home. All of his old acquaintances believe the story of where he had been for the last seven years, all except Mr. Utterson, who knew him well as his friend, and lawyer.Mr. Utterson was within days o [...]


    4. This was a fun and short read- about the length of a novella. I don't know if I ever actually read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but I believe this is intended to be as a kind of sequel. Nowadays, I tend to think of identity theft as a modern crime, but of course this is a conceit. It is as old as time.I always enjoy a Victorian London setting, the lamplighters, the pickpockets, the smogIs this a case of identity theft as the main character seems to believe? Is it paranoia? Is it a descent into madne [...]


    5. NETGALLEY #2Many thanks to Anthony O' Neill, Black & White Publishing, and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review."If he be Mr. Hyde," he had thought; " I shall be Mr. Seek."-R L StevensonGood lord, Utterson be any more greedy? Regardless of the mystery of " Is he or isn't he?" I found Utterson's behavior atrocious. Constantly talking of possessions, deeds, culinary specialties. And his collection of canes is close to obsessive, but it is a bright connect [...]


    6. 2.5 starsThis is a sequel to the classic story of Dr Jekyll and Hyde. It is told through the eyes of Dr Jekyll's lawyer, Mr Utterson, who in a matter of days is due to inherit Jekyll's house and fortune. Mysteriously and with lots of sinister friends, Dr Jekyll reappears, but is it really Dr Jekyll or an imposter?As we go further into this short novella, we see the deterioration of MR Utterson as he battles forces that seem to drive him to desperate acts and what might be considered madness. The [...]


    7. Sometimes you just decide to read a book because you fell in love with the cover.I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Even if you’ve never read the original novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, you undoubtedly know the gist of it. And in case you really don’t, there’s no need to worry as things are explained quite brilliantly without breaking the flow of the story.If he be Mr Hyde, I shall be Mr SeekSeven years ago, Edward Hyde died and Dr. Jekyll we [...]


    8. A wonderful take on the Stevenson novella of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, that may even be darker and psychologically deeper than the original. It puts the whole story into question, using modern thinking tools and concepts to see it from new perspectives. It is also beautifully written, with some truly brilliant sentences and impressive insights into the human soul. Will look for more from this author.


    9. Thank you for my Giveaway copy of this book. I've finished reading and I don't know what to think about it. It was dark and depressing and I felt very sad at the ending. Surely the villain could have been dispatched as well as, or instead of the 'hero'. Too grim for me.


    10. There is something of a huge comfort in picking up a book that possesses that air of gentility which was common to works written in the latter part of the 19th century. The first pages of DR JEKYLL AND MR SEEK instantly catapult the reader into a murky world where deception and nefarious acts are committed by intelligent yet desperate men. Many years have passed since Dr Jekyll suddenly left London society. Lawyer Mr Utterson, seemingly steadfast in his continued assistance to the absent Dr Jeky [...]


    11. The perfect mystery novel.I was delighted to be asked to join the blog tour for this novel. I found it to be very cleverly written. At just 241 pages, it is a quick read and I was engrossed, I read it in just a short few hours! The novel has a beautiful cover and book layout. I am very glad I own a physical copy! The novel opens with Mr Gabriel Utterson, a bald, bird like lawyer. He is discussing business with Mr Richard Enfield on a foggy London Street. The London setting is atmospheric through [...]


    12. I received a free copy through Netgalley, which didn't affect my opinion of the book. Many thanks anyway for letting me review this book.Although I wasn't a fan of the classic Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, I did enjoy this book very much. It starts 7 years after Dr Jekyll 'disappeared' and he reappears. The question is: is he an impostor or is he not? Everybody thinks that he's legit, except Utterson, his dear old friend and heir to his estate. I loved the character of Utterson (read: Utter Nonsense X [...]


    13. I was sceptic about this. I thought it was a retelling. It is not! This is the sequel to Stevenson's famous Jekyll and Hyde story told from the point of view of Mr Utterson, Dr Jekyll's lawyer. The writing is good, the author follows Stevenson's footsteps and still was brave enough to create something new that is just as good as the original story. review is based on an ARC provided by the publishers.


    14. This book is one of the cleverest I've read. Ever. I loved The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde so when I was approved on Netgalley to read this book I was thrilled, if a little nervous that it wouldn't live up to the original, or my expectations. I needn't have worried on either count. Anthony uses evocative descriptions and a clever recap to draw us back into the world of Dr Henry Jekyll, who disappeared prior to this novel, leaving his close friend Utterson set to inherit his entire esta [...]


    15. I think anyone who is willing to take on a classic book and write a sequel of sorts is a brave soul. Those loyal to the classic seldom find a sequel as worthy. I feel that way about ‘Scarlett’, ‘Rhett Butler’s People’ and ‘Ruth’s Journey’, the three Gone With The Wind sequels. But I do find myself curious to read them nonetheless. There has to be someone out there who can write a sequel that is good. Right?Now, I read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde when I was…8 or 9. I was a voracious [...]


    16. Anthony O’Neill has continued where R.L.Stevenson left off with his version of a possible next story in the infamous Jekyll & Hyde classic. It is set seven years after the death of Mr. Edward Hyde. When Dr. Henry Jekyll reappears, it is lawyer and confidante Mr Gabriel Utterson who is the only one aware that Jekyll and Hyde are one in the same person. As Utterson was witness to the death of Hyde he knows that Jekyll must be an impostor. Utterson takes it upon himself to prove this man to b [...]


    17. **RATING 4.5**Anyone who knows me knows that I love my classics and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the best. So when I discovered that some brave author was taking on the task of writing a sequel, I was more than intrigued. And then I saw the cover which words cannot do justice - it is just that captivating. So how did the story fare when its predecessor was surely a masterpiece? Here are my thoughts on the intriguing DR JEKYLL AND MR SEEK by Anthony [...]


    18. (just over 3 stars)I wanted to read this book as I was curious what sequel to such a famous novel would be like. Though it has been a long time since I read Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, I felt O’Neill did a good job making it read like a novel of its time. It made a very credible sequel that did justice to the original. I found myself questioning Mr Utterson’s sanity throughout and at the same time wondering whether he was right, and even after finishing I still wonder what the truth had been.I am [...]


    19. A thoroughly chilling read, with a suitably creepy ending. Satisfying sequel for a classic by a modern author.


    20. The perfect mystery novel.I was delighted to be asked to join the blog tour for this novel. I found it to be very cleverly written. At just 241 pages, it is a quick read and I was engrossed, I read it in just a short few hours! The novel has a beautiful cover and book layout. I am very glad I own a physical copy!The novel opens with Mr Gabriel Utterson, a bald, bird like lawyer. He is discussing business with Mr Richard Enfield on a foggy London Street. The London setting is atmospheric througho [...]


    21. Dr Jekyll and Mr Seek is an intriguing and imaginative sequel to Stevenson’s classic. It takes and develops certain plot elements and themes from the original, subverting them in the process.It is almost seven years since the strange death of Mr Edward Hyde and the simultaneous unexplained disappearance of Dr Henry Jekyll. Gabriel Utterson, Jekyll’s lawyer and friend, and depository of Jekyll’s final confession, is well aware that Jekyll and Hyde were one and the same person. He is therefo [...]


    22. "A sulphurous yellow fog, so thick it muffles the chimes of the Sunday Church bells, had fastened overnight to London and refused to be dislodged by even the stiffest of breezes."With this atmospheric opening sentence Anthony O'Neill sets the scene for his continuation of the story of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The opening to the book creates a mysterious tone which pervades the whole book, a feeling of mystery and  unease as we meet lawyer Mr Utterson, seven years after the dis [...]


    23. 4 stars for this sequel to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the 1886 Gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson.Mr Seek refers to a quote in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, in which its narrator, lawyer Gabriel Utterson, says 'If he be Mr Hyde, I shall be Mr Seek'. It is possible to read this book without having read Stevenson's and find it an enjoyably dark quick read. You will find the novel to be more layered, intriguing and possibly infuriating if you are familiar with the original novel - if you do not read Ste [...]


    24. If ever a novel did not demand a sequel it is the beautifully formed Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde but reason not the need when there is a writing challengeSet some years after the original the story is narrated by the lawyer and friend of Dr Jekyll who has been in change of his effects and property since his mysterious disappearance after the death of Mr Hyde. Mr Gabriel Utterson is also the only person who is in possession of the true facts-he knows Jekyll to be dead because he has read his confession [...]


    25. “He had breached – no, demolished – the fortress of identity.” (198)Anthony O’Neill, you’ve done it again. This deserves to become a classic, right up there with the original.Gabriel Utterson, Dr Jekyll’s lawyer, knows the secret of Jekyll’s transformation into Mr Hyde, saw Hyde/Jekyll’s dead body, and expects within a week to inherit Dr Jekyll’s estate. Jekyll has been missing for seven years and nobody else knows, as Utterson does, that he died with Hyde. Utterson has delig [...]


    26. What can a sequel to a book published 131 years earlier do? Normally I'd find the use of such a sequel very scarce, merely an attempt to extend to another person the success of a classic work. I'd also usually find the much newer book to show only a very diluted fraction of the quality of the original, as many aspects of the work must rely on imitation. Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Seek is something that, definitely, I wouldn't have read from my own initiative for all of those reasons. And most proved t [...]


    27. I downloaded this book because I was attracted by the stunning cover. I was also intrigued as to how this sequel to the famous Robert Louis Stevenson novella, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, would play out. I don't have anything against prequels, sequels and re-imaginings to classic novels, provided it's not a novel (Pride and Prejudice!) that's already been done to death.After starting this novella, I realised I should have re-read the original, because I only had a hazy memory of some o [...]


    28. **I received an ARC from the author for my honest review**Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Seek by Anthony O’Neill is like a sequel to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde a classic that I’m not even going to lie, I have never read. However I do know the story and this book begins seven years after the death of Dr. Jekyll. Mr. Utterson was Dr. Jekyll’s friend and lawyer and named the sole beneficiary of Jekyll’s estate. After seven years he is ready to take possession of the house and have a good life since he has [...]


    29. A cleverly handled sequel to the classic novella, O'Neill takes something of risk, but it has paid off manifestly. From the very first page, the evocative lure of foggy Victorian London permeates every page, pulling the reader into the narrative and setting irresistibly. In addition to this, O'Neill has the language, narrative style and tone just right, evincing the feel of Stevenson's work throughout, whilst adding his own touches to the writing - not an easy feat by any stretch of the imaginat [...]


    30. This story picks up where The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson left off, and contemporary author Anthony O'Neill has done a remarkable job of carrying on seamlessly, in late 19th century, gothic manner. I was surprised and impressed to learn that O'Neill's first work of fiction was a very well-received adaptation of a completely different historical classic: 1001 Nights, which he entitled Sheherazade. The punny titular character Mr. Seek here is Dr. Jekyll's trus [...]
