Patty's Book Reviews: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier


I will admit that I already knew much of the plot of Rebecca before reading the book, as I had already seen the Hitchcock film. Knowing the spoilers aside, however, I enjoyed it.
 
The atmosphere surrounding Manderley and its inhabitants is suitably brooding and the characters are well written and believable—though the narrator is at times a tad on the self-pitying side. Granted, she has to be in order to make the world’s worst housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, more intimidating. Over all, I would say Rebecca is a good story of what happens when pride, secrets, and jealousy are taken too far. ­



Note: I read this to complete the Reading Challenge "A Classic Romance".
