Official Review
One of the best thrillers ever written, what differentiates Rebecca from other books is the atmospherics and the taut, skillful writing. The extraordinary circumstance here is how a dead woman shadows the life of her husband and second wife. Nothing supernatural, yet there is a dread, an allure.

Rated this book

From the very first line till you finally set it down this book is just one thing -gripping... Daphne Du Maurier's most celebrated book ,Rebecca, is one of the best in it.. More details From the very first line till you finally set it down this book is just one thing -gripping... Daphne Du Maurier's most celebrated book ,Rebecca, is one of the best in its genre because of the brilliance of the writing and the intricacies of plot. The novel begins with no hints of the dangerous and thrilling end it will come to. The psychological dilemma of the protagonist is beautifully expressed by Du Maurier. Always living in the looming shadow of her husband's dead wife, Mrs. De Winter wants only what she thought she would have had from her marriage. Rebecca is continually portrayed as the picture of perfection and something that our young, new bride will never be able to attain. At Manderley, everything still seems to belong to the first Mrs. De Winter. Dead, yet not quite, Rebecca, is more real to the readers than our young, unnamed protagonist. Dark, thrilling and breathtaking, the eeriness of this novel stays with the readers long after its end.. Hide details
