1.Explain a character 's problem and then offer your character advice on how to solve his/her problem.
In my opinion the biggest problem has to be the conflict between Dr.Jekyll and
Hyde. Dr.Jekyll kept addressing that he would have wanted someone that would go the extra mile. Later in the story he should have probably changed his mind.

Why? How does the character demonstrate this quality? In my opinion I would choose to character Utterson. He has the bravery and the will to not give up on Hyde and Dr.Jekyll even though all of the horrible things that both of them had done.

If the story were to be told from another characters eyes I believe that the story it self wouldn’t be as good. If the story was not told by Utterson then the readers would have never know that Hyde was in fact in Dr.Jekyll’s will. We would not found this out because Utterson was the attorney and was the most invested with the case.
For this reason the mystery of the novel would not be as good if told by the eyes of another character.
11. Why do you think the author wrote this story?
In my opinion the author wrote this novel because maybe something like this was actually happing to him in his life. For example, someone could have been trying to be someone they aren’t and the outcome of this could have turned out horribly.
Another reason why I think the author wrote this book was because this book
