5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! June 11 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again..."
With that opening sentence, Rebecca offers an addicting and engrossing journey into the mind of our unnamed heroine, slowly tortured by her new marriage to Maxim DeWinter, a man twice her age, and haunted by his dead first wife, Rebecca--whose body was never discovered. She finds herself living in Rebecca's shadow and haunted by the mystery of the woman's death. She is and always will be the SECOND Mrs. DeWinter, something the sinister housekeeper, Ms. Danvers, will not let her forget.
Rebecca is a novel of mystery and passion, a deliciously dark psychological tale with a brooding atmosphere and unbearable tension. Daphne DuMaurier has crafted an exceptional masterpiece of romantic suspense, one of the best books of the 20th century and possibly the best book in the romantic suspense genre. Highly Recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding and Haunting!! Jan. 16 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Rebecca" by Daphne Du Maurier is arguably one of the best books ever written.
The presence of Rebecca is haunting and unforgettable. The shy, timid and unamed second Mrs. DeWinter is another wonderful character, although she is overshadowed by the commanding presence of Rebecca. Another worthy character is that of Mrs. Danvers, the housekeeper who seems to keep Rebecca's presence 'ever alive'.
Ms. Du Maurier's prose is simple and flowing, providing a spellbinding and haunting read.
A permenant book by my bedside, "Rebecca" will be read over and over again.
A wonderful read for all age groups, I truly reccomend it to everyone.

Format:Paperback
I am in an honors English class at my school, and one of the books we read was Rebecca. I had previously bought the book, but I didn't read it until it was time for it in class. It wasn't until the end of the year that we read it, but everyone loved it. Rebecca is a Gothic romance, but it is extremely good. I was hooked from the beginning ,"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again," being the first line, but it might take the first few chapters to get really into it. But believe me it's worth it! I loved this book! It was my favorite novel, even more than To Kill a Mockingbird, out of all the ones I read in English this year. Daphne du Maurier did a great job writing this book. The descriptions are vivid, and the characters are dynamic. As more of the characters are weaved in the plot line, more secrets are revealed-more secrets of Manderley.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book that must be read by everyone!!! Feb. 26 2002
By Peony
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of my teachers recommended this book to me; when she had told me about the plot of this story, I fell in love with it immediately. I could feel how mysterious the story would be even by hearing the outline. I have enjoyed reading Rebecca and enjoyed the feeling of love the author gave me. The story is about a shy young woman, after she marries the mysterious Mr. De Winter, lives under the dark shadow of his first wife, Rebecca. She always felt that people are comparing her to the lovely woman, Rebecca; even her servants did not treat her very kindly. As the story moves on, Mrs. De Winter begins to recognize Rebecca¡s personality more and more. Throughout the whole story, I always had a mysterious feeling about ¡§Who is Rebecca?¡ when I was reading through, I really wanted to know more about this great woman. I was truly surprised with the ending, I could never have guess this romance story would end like this. I highly recommend this book to everyone and wish they all will have the same excited feeling as I do.
