LoveReading View on A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde

This is one of those books you begin reading, a little intrigued as to where it’s going, trying to second guess it, continue reading, find you can’t second guess, get nearer and nearer to the end, discover a great twist and realise you have just read a brilliant and clever book and now need to start all over again! A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde is a dark, maniacal thriller that explores many kinds of duality - individual, social and cultural, and is a heartfelt tale about the search for belonging and the nature of love and desire. We don’t want to give too much away so we’ll just say it’s great and bloody funny – give it a go.

A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde Synopsis

After a bike crash in a foggy Edinburgh, troubled young actor Robert Lewis wakes to find that life has changed for the darker. And the weirder. He's still a deceitful egoist but now life seems to be deceiving and manipulating him. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong. He's losing control of his love life, his starring role in a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, and, quite possibly, his mind.
