Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic gothic tale How often have we dreamed of a place that we can't go back to - it is just a memory. The narrator lives with a past that enroaches on daily life giving seemingly innocent happenings a portent that builds into one of the best gothic suspense books ever. The fact that the narrator has no other name than to be the second Mrs. DeWinter lends to how anonymous she feels compared to the memory of the first wife.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully Written Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca is a beautifully written book that exceeded my expectations. It has been a long time since I've come across a character so relatable and writer with such beautiful prose. Rebecca's impact on the second Mrs. de Winter can be felt by the reader. The intimidation, the fear, the resentment, and the conquering of these feelings. Although there were some plot points that seemed obvious to me and I couldn't believe the narrator wasn't picking up on them, for the most part it was a lovely story to get lost in that I will remember for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't move quickly, but still wanted to keep reading. The young unnamed lead in this novel meets, and soon after marries, Maxim de Winter after meeting him in Monte Carlo while working as a companion to an older lady. When he brings her back to his home in England, Manderley, she seems to be constantly compared to Maxim’s first wife, Rebecca. Although it seems like not much happens in this book, or at least what does happen happens slowly, I still found it quite intriguing and interesting. I wanted to keep reading. I found I really like du Maurier’s writing style. I also found it interesting the way du Maurier would pick out little details to focus on. Knowing that Alfred Hitchcock had made this into a movie, the focus on these little details really made me think that this book would really suit his style, too. I really liked it. Though, I was quite disappointed that too much was given away in the intro to the 2003 edition that I read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read Classic I love this book. It is wonderfully written. Rebecca is one of the few books I have started to read again right after finishing the last page. My favourite quotes: "I believe there is a theory that men and women emerge finer and stronger after suffering, and that to advance in this or any world we must endure ordeal by fire" & "Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thought, a state of mind." The first chapter might be difficult to understand, but after the text becomes easier to comprehend. Happy Reading!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the wait Rebecca has been on my list of 'books to read' for years and I finally picked it up recently. It was worth the wait. I loved the vivid descriptions of the Cornish setting and the air of mystery and suspense that suffused the whole novel. I haven't seen the movie either so every twist and turn in the plot was a surprise to me. Despite its age, the writing is very fresh and familiar for a 21st century reader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good writing and story I found this book to be very intriging. The plot kept you thinking, and the writing style was quite good. Du Maurier fully develops characters and creates an aura of suspense

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely horrible This has got to be one of the slowest, most pointless books that I have ever read. I couldn't bring myself to finish it, no matter how hard I tried. Don't waste your time.
