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!!!
The book arrived in fairly good condition. Some yellowing of the edges, but the binding is still good, so no cracking.
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.

I was advised to read it as it was a "classic". It was OK, but a very slow read.
Don't look for any excitement here.
