  A masterpiece!

| | See all Lalla28's reviews (1)

This is a beautifully written book. You think you know where it's leading you, but it then twists in your fingers leaving you breathless as you chase word after word, page after page. Once you pick it up it will be very difficult to put it back down!

  Wonderful Read

  Haunting

| | See all sunflowersam's reviews (16)

I cannot believe it has taken me so long to get around to reading this book. Haunting, beautifully written and gripping, it is absolutely spell-binding. I would recommend this book for a long train/plane journey. After I got past the first chapter it sucked me in and I didn't want to put it down.There is no doubt that this book is a classic and I'm now going to read more Du Maurier.

The story of the young, naive and painfully shy young woman who comes to live at Manderley with handsome widower Max de Winter who hides a terrible secret regarding his late wife Rebecca who despite being dead is clearly still mistress of Manderley.

  A true masterpiece

| | See all Carpediem's reviews (32)

This book is a true all-time masterpiece exhibiting the pure genius of a great writer. This is the first book of Ms Dumaurier that I read (I'm not really into classics), but it certainly won't be the last. Save for the first few pages, the book is a compulsive page turner with many twists and turns until the dramatic finale. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
