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!!!

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.

"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: Mass Market Paperback
After knowing Maxim de Winter for only a few weeks, the narrator marries him and is taken back to his estate Manderley on the coast of England. However, upon arrival things do not go as the new Mrs. de Winter planned because the memory of Rebecca, Maxim's first wife, continually haunts her. Rebecca's belongings remain untouched, the servant Mrs. Danvers continually comments on how beautiful and amazing Rebecca was, and the narrator begins to feel she will never live up to the seemingly flawless ways Rebecca ran Manderley. As the narrator begins to wonder if even Maxim loved Rebecca more than herself, she prepares for a ball and is unknowingly convinced by the sly Mrs. Danvers to wear the same ball gown Rebecca wore the year before. Just as the new Mrs. de Winter is about to give up hope, the story of the seemingly perfect Rebecca begins to unfold, and the secrets of Rebecca's death are revealed. Daphne du Maurier is a hauntingly beautiful writer with sinister and gothic undertones. She immediately draws readers into the stormy world of Manderley and leaves them with unexpected psychological twists, throwing traditional definitions of good and evil to the wind.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rebecca is a book whose name and cover force recollections from many readers of fiction. I had somehow escaped this story during my younger days but am delighted to have found it as an adult. The opening paragraph has the power to remove you from your surroundings and drop you into the rural landscape of early 20th C England. The demure yet unpolished and insecure young protagonist forces us to connect personally to her constant neurosis concerning her adaptation into the DeWinter home. We have all felt at times so unsure of ourselves and questioned nearly everything and everyone around us. It is this instant symbiotic connection with this young woman which makes the story so engaging. We hope vicariously that her instantanteous entrance into high society is smooth and successful but cower with her when her youthful naivete bungles the daily household management. However, when her paranoia leads her to unearth Rebecca's memory, the real story begins. What a great way to spend a reading respite. I'll definitely be reading it again!!!

As an inspirational romance author, I found Rebecca to be intense and gripping. Daphne DuMaurier did a wonderful job of capturing the flavor of the era. Her characters were real, even the dead Rebecca, the first Mrs. De Winter, invokes her evil through her loyal servant Ms. Danvers. And, when the innocent second Mrs. De Winter enters the scene, she discover Manderley is not a fairy tale land as Mrs. Van Hopper described, but a breathing, seething, bleeding house with many secrets, buried and alive. Life will never be the same for the innocent Mrs. De Winter as she discovers, learns and fights for her own destiny. I couldn't put this book down. And, now I'm reading it's sequel, "Mrs. De Winter" by Susan Hill, and so far, I'm not disappointed. If you're in for a cozy thriller with plenty of twists and turns, then this is the book for you. Good reading, and I bid you good dreams. By Kelly R. Stevens, author of "Ragdoll, Song of the Cimarron," and "One With the Wind."
