What Mary Read

“Rebecca” by Daphne du Maurier

I finished this last night, and it was an excellent read. It is indeed a stunning book. I am pretty sure that I’d read it a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. With that came very little solid memory of the high details of the storyline. I found myself both whipping through it, and returning to read earlier sections.

When I was in my mid teens I went with my little sister to stay the night at our Uncle’s Art Deco apartment, and watch the Hitchcock film adaptation of Rebecca with him. We were highly influenced by Mrs Danvers, and pretty horrified too. After that, and all our being Danvers, I read the book. It was worth returning to after a few decades!

Read it, and you too might find yourself dreaming of Manderley again.

Now to find a copy of the film to watch again as well.
