I loved this! It's been a long while since I last fell in love with a classic. I've heard good things about Daphne du Maurier but it took forever for me to actually pick up one of her books. Maybe the most powerful thing in this book is the atmosphere. It keeps the reader engaged to the story the whole time. I can't remember many classics that have done that to me before. ❤️

Reading with my breakfast. It was nice to get some me time on a busy business trip. This time my jet lag worked for me and gave me some extra reading time in the morning. That Acai bowl was sooo good!!! 🤤

Letter R

It has to be Rebecca. I read it for the first time as a teen & was obsessed; I kept reading it over & over for a few years. That haunting opening line; the Gothic atmosphere; the glamour, dread, & mystery. How it shifts from the heady holiday vibes of Monte Carlo to the terrifying yet opulent gloom of Manderley.

Probably worth noting that I was similarly obsessed with Jane Eyre 😆 #sensingatheme

vivastory I know that some people think that the ending is rushed, but IMO the entire book is perfect 1mo

Finally finished this classic a few days ago. I had forgotten how beautifully she could write and although I liked the movie, there were so many treasures in her descriptions and way of putting things that were on a different level than the visual experience. I rather preferred the original ending too. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Texreader Yes I was none too pleased with all the changes made in the recent movie. I too very much preferred the original version. I couldn‘t understand why some of the changes were even made. 3mo

Thanks for the tag @PaperbackPirate ! 😊

1. If “moody” means depressing, then no. I don‘t like depressing books. For example, I‘ve never read Tess of the D‘Urbervilles. I‘m not sure I could take it. But if “moody” means atmospheric, then yes!

2. The tagged book is wonderfully atmospheric and in that sense, moody. The Cornish coast, Manderley‘s East Wing that no one uses, creepy Mrs. Danvers, Rebecca‘s memory haunting the pages...

PaperbackPirate Thank you for sharing! 😒 (moody emoji) 4mo
Ruthiella @PaperbackPirate It was fun to think about! 😃 4mo
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 4mo
Leniverse I'm the same, and haven't read Tess of the D'Urbervilles for that exact same reason. If I know in advance that the book is going to be sad and end badly, I just can't do it. (With some exceptions, like Greek tragedies.) I need to feel a bit of hope along the way. 4mo
Ruthiella Always nice to find someone who understands! There are other readers who love the misery. Maybe they find it cathartic? 😃 I have to say that A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry is an exception to my rule. I loved that book even though it was quite sad. 4mo

Daphne du Maurier looms large in my memories of teenage reading, but I think I've actually only ever read Jamaica Inn, The House on the Strand, and a collection of short stories. Rebecca passed me by for some reason. I saw the movie the other day, bought the book at the farmer's market and am rectifying this gap in my literary education!

#OnThisDay in 1907 a woman was born who would go on to craft one of the most hauntingly beautiful opening sentences in literature. Daphne DuMaurier published her first novel at the age of 24, and in 1938 her novel Rebecca was an immediate bestseller and has remained in print (and adaptations) ever since. A prolific writer of novels, short stories, and plays, her ability to create atmosphere is a stand out in Gothic literature. #HistoryGetsLIT

Currently at a loss for words about my feelings for this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved the suspense, but the ending and my feelings about the characters... I have no idea! Ha I'll have to sleep on it.

My book club meeting is coming up in a week so hopefully I have my thoughts in order!

Regardless, I give it a solid 4.5 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 I thought the writing was clever and very anxiety invoking.

What did you think?

One of few books I‘ve been able to get through via audiobook! The young Mrs De Winter was clearly young, and a few times that was tiresome. But the descriptions of Manderley, the gardens, the rooms, put you in a time and place. The suspense was well foreshadowed and then revealed. Now to watch the Hitchcock version! I‘m also curious if anyone knows about the Brazilian author who claims that Du Maurier plagiarized for this book.

It was disturbing, like an enchanted place. I had not thought it could be as beautiful as this.” -Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier

It‘s quite fitting that the day I chose to review Rebecca is rainy. Rebecca would be a perfect rainy day read. It‘s atmospheric and slightly creepy. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. It‘s definitely a new favorite.

RaeLovesToRead If you like Rebecca, you might like Wuthering Heights as that's kind of gothic too. If you'd like something more pleasant, Jane Eyre & anything by Jane Austen are must reads. Not necessarily what you think of immediately for a classic, but also worth trying if you like things a bit noir is Patricia Highsmith's Strangers on a Train. 8mo

First of all, what a gorgeous book. I know I shouldn't be "judging a book by it's cover", but I just have to make an exception here

I felt the first half to be a little slow and repetitive, but the second half blew me away

The relatable overthinking and paranoid quality of the main character resonated with me

The ending of the book, though unconventional, was truly amazing. Simply mind-blowing how the story twists and turns out of the blue

#SundaySoapbox

Rebecca was famously adapted by Alfred Hitchcock.
In Daphne du Maurier‘s Gothic classic Rebecca, these haunting words begin the narrative of the nameless second wife of Mr. de Winter, owner of a large country estate called Manderley. The poetic sound to this sentence is achieved through the use of meter, specifically iambic hexameter (12 syllables, with the stress on every second syllable).

EadieB As the opening line suggests, the entire tale is told retrospectively, from a time and place far away from the dramatic and distressing events the second Mrs. de Winter has lived through. This brooding narrative construct immediately raises the question: what happened between then and now? Why is she no longer at Manderley? 8mo
EadieB The gripping tale that unfolds has been so popular that the book has never gone out of print, with readers remembering it as much for the sinister Mrs. Danvers as for its lyrical opening.
8mo
eeclayton Excellent choice, Eadie. I never noticed the iambic pentameters, although I think I read this in translation. Fascinating info! 8mo

Rebecca, what an amazing novel. I completely understand why that would be a classic! Living in Rebecca's shadow is not easy for the new Mrs. De Winters, every room in Manderley makes her think of her husband's late wife. How will she overcome the ghosts of Manderley's past?

This is from @thegreensofa #newyearwhodis list! Absolutely loved it. 😁❤📚

Do you judge a book by its cover? This title is a great example for how my motivation to read a book can depend on my interest of the cover 🪞 I had a half price mass market paperback of this same title on my shelves for 5+ years,& despite all what I heard about it, I had no motivation. After reading “The Reading List” I bought this copy, with a cover I like, & have FLOWN through it 🌊🚤 🪨 🌊 Even when I have already seen the movie, I‘m hooked!

I‘m not a classics reader, but I was looking for a quick read and this abridged audio fit the bill. I‘m sure I could‘ve gotten a much better feel for the entire atmosphere of the novel had I read the paperback copy on my shelf, but for an abridgment, I thought this was pretty good — not too choppy or disjointed. I enjoyed it! (Though the abrupt and unexpected ending took me by surprise.)

This isn't a book to be read in a single sitting; space it out a bit to enjoy it properly. I think it‘s enduring appeal is due to the fact that it‘s a deeply multi-layered literary novel, disguised as romantic fiction. You come for the spooky Gothic love story, but you stay for the evergreen interrogation of women‘s subservience to (and subversion of) the rule of men.
