    About "Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Bram Stoker Robert Louis Stevenson"

    1. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Bram Stoker Robert Louis Stevenson

      Mary Shelley n e Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft.Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley Romance and Reality, that a full length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley s letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published.The well meaning attempts of Mary Shelley s son and daughter in law to Victorianise her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley s works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression The eclipse of Mary Shelley s reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement She was seen as a one novel author, if that In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated Shelley s recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized after Percy s death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.

    1. This is one of my all-time favorite paperbacks. A single binding of Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dr.Jekyll and Mr Hyde with an introduction by Stephen King. I have separately rated Frankenstein as four stars, Dracula as three stars, and I would rate Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde as a big time five stars. Yet the reason I would go a full five stars on this edition is two-fold1) The idea of placing these novels together is a stroke of genius. You have the three cornerstones of modern horror. Frankenstein i [...]

    2. I deeply enjoyed Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde! I enjoyed this book because the diction is easily comprehendable and has a fantastic theme arguing scientic rationalism against ambition. The language Robert Louis Stevenson uses enhances the imagery the reader illistrates in their mind and also adds to the overall understanding of London's society in the late nineteenth century. The Gothic mystery serves as the perfect storyline for the overarching theme of the duality of nature as scientist Henry Jekyl [...]

    3. I only read the Dracula portion of this book so that's all I'm reviewing.I liked it. It was good. If it had been written today, it DEFINITELY would have been a trilogy. So, I kept thinking we were coming to the endd then a whole new segment would begin. And for that reason, it seemed too long to me. First I thought it was about going to his castle and how to escape. Then it was about the poor girl and what was going to happen to her. And THEN it was about catching the villain. All very separate [...]

    4. You know the book you've read is mediocre at best when the most well-written part was the introduction, even if someone as great as Stephen King wrote it. Three classics in the horror genre, whose influence is felt to this day, you'd think one of them would be above average. Nope. King actually gives fair warning in his intro that the stories are not written particularly well, but I wondered if maybe he was being too harsh. Turns out he was being too kind. First was Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, [...]

    5. Dr. Jekyll created a potion that changed his life. Dr. Jekyll lived a well spent life, born among wealth, and with a hardworking, decent nature. From his birth Jekyll had an interest in the indecent and evil side of life. This interest stuck with him until fully grown when he finally discovered a way to act on it without affecting his reputation.Mr. Utterson, the protagonist of the story and a friend of Dr. Jekyll, is a lawyer who helped create a peculiar will for a good friend Dr. Jekyll for a [...]

    6. This combination of novels really summarizes their immortality since they are the true original and foundation of all other horror books. Frankenstein: A marvelous psychological and philosophical book that looks at the good and bad side of humanity and really puts the question of who is the true villain in question. The story itself is quite emotional and gives insight to the conflicted main character who can be seen as both a protagonist in some instances but more so the antagonist overall. The [...]

    7. Stephen King introduction in this omnibus edition.Stephen King recommended book. In Chapter 3 of Berkley's 1983 paperback edition of Danse Macabre, King said: "The three novels I want to discuss in this chapter seem to have actually achieved that immortality, and I believe it's impossible to discuss horror in the years 1950-1980 with any real fullness of understanding unless we begin with these three books."Those three books are Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dracula, and Frankenstein.

    8. A hard book to rate because I liked Dracula so much (couldn't put the book down and devoured the pages) and I disliked Frankenstein so much (one of the worst "classics" written in my opinion).

    9. Great collection, actually 4 1/2 stars on average, but these are classic horror suspense stories not to miss

    10. Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde was an extremly enjoyable book the mystery contained within the worn pages of this spectacular book, is a mystery that will leave you reading nonstop, leaving you with the yearning to know every detail this short, but fantastic story contained. This book was enjoyable, however the only thing I wished would have been different is the beginning chapter. the opening of this book was not really a pull in to read more. In books one of the most importaint parts that i believe is [...]

    11. Although I own this edition of the book, and read the Stephen King introduction to it, I am reading a different edition of the three novels. I found a website -- DailyLit -- that emails you snippets of classic books every day, so that they can be read in a serialized manner over the course of a few weeks to months, depending on the length of the work. I am going to experiment with reading these three novels that way and review those editions of them, and my experience with Daily Lit, when I fini [...]

    12. Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a captivatingly mysterious novel set in London during the late 1800s. It tells the story of Mr. Gabriel Utterson, a town lawyer, as he investigates the mystery surrounding an old friend and colleague of his, Dr. Henry Jekyll. Utterson is alarmed to discover that Dr. Jekyll’s will had named an unfamiliar Mr. Hyde as the sole beneficiary of his estate. This raises questions that Utterson becomes determined to have answered. Upon meeting Mr. H [...]

    13. Good vs. evil plays a substantial role in the chilling mystery of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde. Revolving around Dr.Jekyll, a well known and well acclaimed scientist living in London, his number one goal turned to separating his ‘evil’ side from his body and into it’s own. To accomplish this, Jekyll concocted a potion that would transform him in to the perilous Edward Hyde. The creation of the disguise gave Jekyll the ability to go about his dirty and malicious deeds and then safely return to his [...]

    14. The plot of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was interesting, but reading the book was not. What I mean when I say this is the story sounded interesting when someone had told me about it before reading the story. The fact that a man lived two separate lives (trying to describe the story without giving too much away) UNREALISTICALLY made the story sound mysterious. All throughout the story, I was waiting for a twist. I was thinking, "Okay, I know that was going to happen, but what next?" It turned out the [...]

    15. “The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, is about a man named Henry Jekyll who performs experiments in an attempt to separate the dual personalities of good and evil found in every human being. He wishes to give each a separate entity so that they may not conflict. Instead, he unleashes his secondary dark personality within the same body. Two men. Two polar-opposite personalities. One body. This age-old story is one that most people have heard, but simply d [...]

    16. These books are a classic, which is why I read them, but man has writing and language evolved since their creation! And so has "horror" literature, but I do want to note that I was wrapped up in all three books at most points, but toward the end of Dracula I just wanted the whole book to be done. I did think it was interesting though, that in all three,at least parts of the stories were told using letters or journal entries.Frankenstien - I was expecting the Frankenstien that is portrayed in mov [...]

    17. Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde / 0-451-52363-6The classic three foundational works of horror, and the inspiration for dozens if nor hundreds of movies, are packaged here together in an attractive tight package."Frankenstein" is something of a love-it-or-hate-it work and I will confess of falling on the more heretical side of that equation - there's a strong didactic feel to the work and Shelley comes off a little too hand-wringing and pearl-clutching for my taste. All well and go [...]

    18. In Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, originally written in 1886 entitled "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", a lot of details are unclear and rather murky. At first I really didn't like it, eventually I began to understand why. This was the author's, Robert Louis Stevenson's was of raising questions in the reader's mind while turning a story into a haunting tale of freak science gone wrong.Starting out it was noticeably well written, although the story was undeniable similar to many other mons [...]

    19. These three together are the horror classics modern authors like King, Rice, Crichton, Thomas Harris are greatly indebted to. I think Stoker's Dracula is the strongest novel of the three--one with unforgettable characters, a propulsive narrative, and one where the narration and dialogue feels more natural. All three interestingly enough have first person elements. Dracula is almost entirely told through journals and letters; Frankenstein is framed as a letter about Victor Frankenstein including [...]

    20. Este libro nos sitúa en Europa en el siglo XVIII y nos presenta al capitán de un barco ballenero que va relatando en sus cartas a su hermana el encuentro que tuvo con el físico Victor Frankenstein que, buscando el secreto de la vida, crea un ser con partes de otros seres humanos.Lo primero que sorprende es la originalidad del tema y el hecho de que Frankenstein fuera el nombre del creador y no del mónstruo en sí. A través de este experimento Mary nos expone una dura confrontación entre la [...]

    21. I found Robert Louis Stevenson's version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to be very good. I would recommend everyone to read this story even if you think it would be too weird. Everyone knows the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and I had a basic understanding of the story at first. Once I continued to read though I found little details that completely changed my understanding of the work as a whole. These little details allowed me to see more in depth the story and abled me to see what the author wa [...]

    22. Dracula sucked. Get over it. The majority of the book seemed to be some Keystone Kops parody as the guys try to figure out what's afflicting Lucy. I wanted to scream "it's a vampire, you idiots!" I was relieved when Van Helsing finally makes his appearance, but even he didn't save this book. It is just too damn long. Stoker would've written a much better book if he shortened it by half (Stephen King could take a lesson from this, too).Frankenstein was a great book. I expected to struggle through [...]

    23. *REVIEW WILL BE FOR DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE ONLY!!*“It is one thing to mortify curiosity, another to conquer it."Mr. Utterson is a lawyer. A lawyer who gets instantly curious as his friend and distant relative Mr. Enfield tells him a story about a hideous looking man running over a poor little girl. Little did he know that this story will launch him into a series of mind-boggling events all revolving around one man -- his close friend: Dr. Henry Jekyll.I was actually surprised this was only 70 [...]

    24. I have read all three titles, just not in one compilation. I did think Dracula somewhat anticlimactic. And I'm not so fascinated by Mina's secretarial ambitions. Frankenstein is the most frightening to me, because it is about the devil within, and our inability to see our own soul's peril with clarity. The same premise makes Angel Heart the most frightening film I've ever seen. Its not the sensationalism of the most notorious scene, but the abject horror of Roarke's face as he looks in the mirro [...]

    25. This isn't the exact edition I have, but it's content is the same, incl. the foreword by King. Highly influential in my life, much to the chagrin of my mother and others who thought I should've read "better" things. Dracula has stood up, though the others, though great, seem dated. Stoker and King are the only writers of vampire stuff I've read. I'm kinda protestingJuly 12, 2010Okay, I found the book and looked up the ISBN and so now the edition's right--but without the cover, which is actually [...]

    26. I actually only read the Frankenstein portion of this book. I had already read the other two stories previously. As for Frankenstein, it was very different from what I would have guessed from the popularized portrayals I've seen in various forms of media. I had no idea what the story was about, so it was a nice surprise to read it and see what really happened in the story. I also think it's amazing that Mary Shelley wrote this when she was 19. In the introduction Stephen King says that the writi [...]

    27. I've already reviewed each individual book in this separately on their own pages. The collection overall is pretty good. I think putting these three novels together is a good choice, as they're three of the most famous horror novels of the 19th century. The Stephen King introduction is a nice touch and certainly well worth reading. My only minor complaint with the way this is presented is that the page numbering is non-continuous, which I find slightly annoying. Were I to want to get more in-dep [...]

    28. Frankenstein - I had read this story previously, so I skipped reading it in this book.Dracula - Finished this story on 2011Jun10.I'm don't read many novels using the epistolary structure, so that made the beginning feel a little distant and disjointed. But once the story had gotten under way, I was pulled in and couldn't wait to sneak opportunities to keep reading this. As a story I'd recommend this, but when you add in the influence this has had on generations of novelists, it reaches almost "m [...]

    29. Three of the greatest horror stories ever printed. To think that the classic: Frankenstein was conceived by a woman, especially during her time, is fascinating. Though if you read the underlying message of love and acceptance in a strange World, one can understand and see how a woman's touch was needed to make that story possible. Dracula and Jekyll & Hyde are two other examples of brilliant imaginations and storytelling with an underlying message of life and it's many mysteries as well as e [...]
