Rebecca
Rebecca | Daphne Du Maurier, Dame
With these words, the reader is ushered into an isolated gray stone mansion on the windswept Cornish coast, as the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter recalls the chilling events that transpired as she began her new life as the young bride of a husband she barely knew. For in every corner of every room were phantoms of a time dead but not forgotten a past devotedly preserved by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers: a suite immaculate and untouched, clothing laid out and ready to be worn, but not by any of the great house's current occupants. With an eerie presentiment of evil tightening her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter walked in the shadow of her mysterious predecessor, determined to uncover the darkest secrets and shattering truths about Maxim's first wife the late and hauntingly beautiful Rebecca. This special edition of "Rebecca" includes excerpts from Daphne du Maurier's "The Rebecca Notebook and Other Memories," an essay on the real Manderley, du Maurier's original epilogue to the book, and more.

I‘m excited about this! The only thing I know about this book is from what I heard from my Litsy friends, so im more or less going in blind (I hate that it has that Netflix sticker on the cover 😡)

I wasn't sure this book was for me at first. It dragged in the beginning, but I flew through the second half. It's dark and a little twisted, and you will question your loyalties more than once. I'm definitely interested to check out more from Daphne du Maurier.

#authoramonth As much as I read I was a little shocked to realize I haven‘t read Rebecca. I‘ve seen the original movie many times, none of the remakes.
Since there is a new remake, the library has a waitlist.
A good excuse to mask up & give my local used bookstore some business! I‘m glad the owner knows some people love the old hardcovers just cuz.Not sure if I will get to The Parasites this month but couldn‘t resist.

KCofKaysville I liked the old movie too, but still have not read it.

I‘ve always loved the 1940 Hitchcock adaptation of Rebecca. I watched the new one a few weeks ago and it was just okay imo. I don‘t know why it‘s taken me so long to read this book, but I‘m so glad I finally did! It‘s so well-written and I had a hard time putting it down, even though I knew about all the plot twists. I read it slowly over the last couple of weeks and now I have a book hangover! 5⭐️

GingerAntics Disagree!!! Who came up with this idea?! Sheesh. 2y
DGRachel For me, it‘s a firm disagree. Some of the best, most transporting books I‘ve read this year have been 2020 releases. That being said, if it works for the article‘s author or for anyone else, that‘s great. I‘m not raining on anyone‘s book parade. 😇 2y
TheBookAddict Hmmm. I don‘t go purposely looking for old or new books. I just go with what catches my eye. If I‘m browsing through our local library‘s website it‘s usually a cover that draws my attention. If I‘m at the middle school library I work at it‘s usually a book that I‘ve had a conversation about or a book that I‘ve noticed many kids borrow. If I‘m interested by the synopsis or the conversation I give it a try. It has gotten me out of my reading slump. 2y
See All 11 Comments
TheBookAddict Most of the books I‘ve read using those methods recently have been enjoyable in their own way. I have noticed that most of them are new or newish books. I‘m kind of neutral on the subject, so I say go with what works for you and what you enjoy. Go with what brings you joy instead of forcing yourself to go with what is popular or what others say is best. Life is too short to torture yourself, so instead enjoy yourself. 😊👍🏽 2y
TrishB Just read what you want. 😁 2y
Susanita I‘m with @TrishB ! 2y
TheAromaofBooks I read whatever sounds good, old or new. However, I do know a lot of people who are very caught up in the ARC review cycle & so are constantly “obligated“ to read only new books, which would be very stressful for me! 2y
Scochrane26 I read a mix of old & new books, but I am often at least a year or 2 behind. I‘ve read hardly any books on the GR voting this year. I haven‘t noticed a difference though in how I feel about old vs new. (edited) 2y
Billypar I think this is one of those cases of the editors choosing a more provocative, click-baitish title than fits the article. The author isn't advocating that people stop reading new books, just that since she started reading more older books, she's found them more immersive and easier to shut out the anxiety of current events. So I agree with the author, but not the title. I personally enjoy cycling between new and backlist books. 2y
Texreader @GingerAntics @DGRachel @TheBookAddict @TrishB @Susanita @TheAromaofBooks @Scochrane26 @Billypar I loved the intense opinions on this one! I agree wholeheartedly with @TrishB and @Billypar but the irony is I rarely read new books because I prefer cheaper smaller paperbacks. But by golly if I want to buy a brand spanking new hardback, I‘m gonna read it when I darn well please. 😄 I do think that headline was click-bait. 1y
GingerAntics After reading the article, it definitely was click bait. In fact, it seems a bit pretentious. In a pandemic, you should be reading classics, not new books. 🙄 Classics aren‘t everyone‘s cup of tea. In fact, the books she talked about having read recently, I bailed on half of them because I couldn‘t stand them. It was an opinion piece with a click bait title, and nothing more. I found myself rolling my eyes at most it it while I was reading. 1y

Guess what book my son‘s going to be reading in his freshman pre-AP English class? Can you say it with me? Yaaaaay! This was my favorite and first adult novel I read when I was in late elementary school. I hate this cover. It doesn‘t compare to the beloved copy I borrowed endlessly from the Round Rock Public Library. But...guess who will be reading it with her son! I‘m sharing The Black Rose with him now, and soon this one! ❤️❤️❤️

MsMelissa Lucky! I would have loved it had this been on my required reading lists in high school. 2y
Texreader @Book_Fiend_Melissa Me too! Isn‘t that the coolest thing ever? I wonder if my son will like it though. I fear it might be too slow for him, as he likes lots of action and things going on. It will be interesting for both of us. 2y

Before starting it I knew very little about the plot which, I believe, made me enjoy this a lot more. Even though I predicted a few things, I still loved the writing style and I particularly liked the descriptions of Manderley, which I percieved as a character on its own. Also, beware of unhealthy relationships!

Which book when you finally read it, after it sitting on your TBR for years, did you say to yourself I wish I‘d read this sooner!

Scochrane26 Rebecca is one of those for me, too. I‘m sure there‘s more, but one series I was late to is Harry Potter.

I‘ve found a new favourite book! Why didn‘t I read this book many years ago, a really special book that surprised me at so many points in the book. If you haven‘t read it I fully recommend it to you. Mrs Danvers is quite some character - what a horrible woman. Couldn‘t put this down and just read on and on and on. Just regret having finished it so quickly. Off to find more books by Daphne Du Maurier. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️

umbrellagirl @EadieB ooo that‘s another good one 👍🏻 3y
EadieB @umbrellagirl Have you read it? 3y
ImperfectCJ This reminds me that I need to read more du Maurier. I've read The Parasites and a collection of her short stories, including "The Birds" upon which the Alfred Hitchcock movie was based, and loved both. 3y
rwmg Can I recommend 3y
jillrhudy A favorite! I've also read The Parasites, The House on the Strand, and My Cousin Rachel mentioned above plus some of her short stories. I own Frenchman's Creek but haven't read it yet. 3y
Lizpixie I‘m another that hasn‘t read it yet. I do have a beautiful anniversary edition of it, just haven‘t picked it up to read. I need to fix that! 3y
ljuliel That‘s the EXACT same thing I said when I read it : why didn‘t you read this sooner ? It is so good. Another favorite that‘s almost as good is My Cousin Rachel. Sometimes I think they‘d be tied for equally good. 3y
youneverarrived It‘s such a memorable book 💙 3y
Andrew65 Thanks everyone, now got a short list of recommended books by her to read next. 😊👍 @umbrellagirl @EadieB @ImperfectCJ @rwmg @jillrhudy @ljuliel 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 I have collected almost all of her books but only read a few. 3y

Not at all what I expected. I thought it would be creepier - that Rebecca would haunt the place more, maybe even be secretly living in the west wing. So I was therefore more surprised by the twist than I normally would be.
Now that I‘ve finished it and can look at what it is rather than what I thought it would be, I can appreciate the reflections of Jane Eyre and the duality of the Mrs de Winters. Looking forward to discussing with my book club.

Cathythoughts I havnt read yet ... but the old movie is really fabulous 3y

When I think of haunted I think of the first line of Rebecca.

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”

Sometimes we‘re haunted by ghosts, and sometimes we‘re haunted by memories.

Now I want to read this book again. I wonder if there‘s any way I can fit it in this month?

Totally spent after the wild ride Daphne du Maurier‘s Rebecca took me on. After a slower-paced yet meticulously crafted first half, the second half was twist after turn, with grim revelations and suspense-filled moments that took me in directions I didn‘t expect. I can see why it‘s a favourite of so many, and it absolutely lived up to my high hopes after reading and loving My Cousin Rachel.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I love Dame Daphne so much! Have you read Sarah Waters? I find her writing to have a similar gothic feel. 3y
LeahBergen I ❤️ this book! 3y

KerriNTurner @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled no I haven‘t, will have to try her out. Is there any book in particular you‘d recommend starting with? 3y
KerriNTurner @LeahBergen it was wonderful! 3y
KerriNTurner @Cinfhen thank you! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled They‘re all good! Fingersmith and Tipping the Velvet are her most popular, I think, but The Little Stranger is one helluva creepy story that‘s good for October! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Also - just saw you‘re the author of The Last Days of the Romanov Dancers! Im adding that to my Amazon wishlist! I‘m always on the lookout for novels set in Russia, especially during the Revolution. Looks right up my alley 👍 3y
LeahBergen And I second @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled recommendation of Sarah Waters. 👍🏻 3y

This was a slow burn, and I'm glad I started with the audiobook and switched to print around chapter 16 (.../when I couldn't renew my Libby loan). So many reactions! So many things to discuss!

“Rebecca, always Rebecca. I should never be rid of Rebecca”, laments the young second Mrs de Winter, timid and naive, who is in fear of the housekeeper. Nothing is at it seems in this novel of love and suspense. Loved it.

Spooky and DEEPLY atmospheric. It has a strong cinematic air and I think I‘ll check out the Hitchcock adaptation soon. A good read for fall. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book 27/30 for #BFCR2

Hufflepuffle I need to read this! I keep picking it up and putting it back in book stores but I definitely need to read it! 3y

Mehso-so

I couldn‘t stand the narrator for the first half of the book. Kept having to set the book down and walk away because I was sick of spending time with her and her “woe is me, I‘m so pitiful and inferior, wah wah” attitude. The second half bumped it from a pan to so-so. Definitely very atmospheric, and I did like Manderley. Mrs. Danvers was creepy, but I didn‘t hate her. Maybe because I get so immersed in books, it was too unpleasant for me.

I was on edge the entire book waiting as our narrator learns the secrets of Maxim, Rebecca, and Manderley. The constant sense of apprehension felt by the narrator is also felt by the reader. I did skim some of the lengthier descriptions bc I needed to know how it would resolve. The scenes with Mrs. Danvers in particular will continue to haunt me. Manderely and what goes on within its walls will stay with me. #wonderwall #anglophileapril

Blaire Also will the unnamed narrator “be the one to save” Maxim “maybe...you‘ll be the one to save me” 🎶 3y
