I wanted to read Jekyll and Hyde and found loads of priced versions on Amazon - then came across this gem.
The formatting, layout and active index is first rate.
I had no idea RLS had written all these short stories. Not all are quite what one expects, but it's been a real eye opener in terms of some real quality moments.
I must admit that having read and hated Treasure Island at school I thought I would be a little bored, but not a bit of it. There are some lovely stories, a wry sense of humour and really excellent penmanship.
Thank you for such an excellent collection at such a reasonable price : CW.

RLS remains pertinent to our times and these shorter works are essential. He is unfairly remembered for half a dozen works, and although Treasure Island and Kidnapped are masterpieces, so, too, are these works.
