Rosemary couldn't help but have a small smile cross her face on how bluntly Joey put his situation. "Well, you have that down. The plot is about a well-to-do doctor Henry Jekyll who starts experimenting, finding a way to change his appearance and personality drastically as a way to let out his inner, animalistic self. That is what changes him from a nice, gracious man into the brutish and at times murderous, Edward Hyde."
The girl picked up the book, pointing at it. "You can argue that what happened to Jekyll is either the duality of human nature: meaning that we have one self we put as a mask to the world and a baser, instinctual hidden self. Or, there is no duality at all. That the case of Jekyll and Hyde was in all accounts a show of one man's struggle to contain the demon within himself, and eventually the demon winning out."
The girl sighed. "You could also talk about how Hyde takes pleasure in his killing and torturing of others, some examples would be at the beginning where Hyde tramples a little girl and then pays off her family for her injuries. Another is when he kills a member of the British Parliament. I would also suggest reading quotes from the 'letter' parts of the story so you sound like you know what your talking about; or cliffnote them."
The girl sighed, she didn't know she could talk this long to someone. But then again, it was about a book...
"And personally, even if you don't particurally like reading I think it's a decent enough story. And don't tell me that you could just rent the movie because the movie versions mess everything up."
