AudioFile, April 2015

Narrator Roy McMillan takes one of Stevenson’s best horror stories and wraps his vocal cords around it with a reedy English accent that brings the dramatic sequences to a stunning conclusion. McMillan ably portrays the two friends who went to medical school together, studying under a doctor of questionable ethics. The duo’s meeting, years later, in a bar leads to the story’s rising tension and chilling conclusion. McMillan’s clipped delivery and perfectly placed emphasis make this trip to the dark side a treat for horror fans and a good introduction for those not familiar with Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. © 2015 Audiofile

Sound Commentary, April 2010

Roy McMillan’s mellow, low key reading is richly done. Most enjoyable. © 2010 Sound Commentary Read complete review
