A guy who likes to read to feel.
It was just as wild as the Netflix show, even crazier.
The End of the Fucking World
Books | Charles Forsman
A rather short story but a fun one for sure. Its about a lawyer who is trying to figure out what's going on with his friend Henry Jekyll after he recieves his will. The whole story is a page turner, except for the long winded ending chapter. I would recommend just skip it altogether, unless you want more information on Henry Jekyll's perspective.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (100 Copy Collector's Edition)
Books | Robert Louis Stevenson
I love many things about this book, like the beautiful detail, the slow and sudden urges, the bitterness, and the odd ending. Alan Campbell's part of the story really is the apex and it really makes you wonder "what did he do?". Great book, it is also a banned book in its time, you can see why as one main character is a pessimist, paradoxical, and non-religious man which would have been a serious issue in the time of publication. There's also some possible homosexual moments inbetween.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Books | Oscar Wilde
Amazing story with characters you will love. I'm personally interested in this story because I've been through some of these things when I was in a mental ward myself. It is a hard read though; some parts of the story have immediate transitions: at one point you're seeing yourself in a mental ward and the next thing you know, Chief is hallucinating on drugs or reminiscing on his old life. These sudden changes in the theme happen so suddenly, you tend to have to re-read certain bodies of text.
