Olalla was my first venture into the literary works of Robert Louis Stevenson and it was not a very good one. I have a lot of friends who keep telling me to get to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde so I had high expectations of this one, but I don’t know. I don’t think the story was very good, or that much happened for that matter. I know Victorian prose has a tendency to be slow but this is taking it to a new level. No thanks.
