Our customer reviews

This has been an interesting month for me - between reading Wilkie Collins' masterpiece, THE WOMAN IN WHITE and now REBECCA. Daphne du Maurier takes us inside the life of the second Mrs. de Winter; like Collins' main protaganist, Marianne, the second Mrs. de Winter is a plain woman although she lacks the backbone shown by Marianne. From there on out the similarities end. I don't recall ever being told the name of Mrs. de Winter but I think that was the point of the story. I found myself caught up in the dark, gothic-feeling descriptions of Manderley and its grounds and could even hear the sound of the sea in portions of the book. Being unfamiliar with the story I had hoped that I would be shocked or taken by surprise at the ending, but unfortunately, it was one I guessed. Still I enjoyed the unfolding of the twists and turns and the storytelling very much. The characters in this book were exquisitely written; Mr. de Winter a brooding, dark and handsome man and the second Mrs. de Winter an innocent, pure and naive creature. They make this story - but not alone. Although we never actually get to meet Rebecca it's fascinating to see her character develop through the words of Mrs. Danvers, Beatrice and through Mrs. de Winter's own imagination. As I read this book I couldn't help but think ... what would it be like to step into the shoes, the home, the life of a beautiful, vivacious woman? Would I survive it?show more
