Every man has two sides to his character.He is two people.They live together-often uncomfortably-in the same body.
Dr.Jekyll is Mr Hyde.Mr Hyde is Dr.Jekyll.Why?
He thinks that if HE can separate these two charactere and give my fun-loving side his freedom.
He read many scientific books and spent many hours in his laboratory,searching for the right mixture of chemicals tomake his drug.It is very dangeraous.
What did he become? ( )

Jekyll drank medicament which was tested. After this he became a nother person who was called Hyde. Hyde did everything bad to people. However, Jekyll is a good guy. He changed between bad and good guy which made him isane and crazy. This absurd story tells us that people can not be always kind. Everyone has his or her negative aspect. It's really good to read!
