My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Rebecca is a classic. Written in 1938 by Daphne du Maurier, who, as an author, struggled with her own identity in a changing world. She throws her personal conflicts into this novel and unravels a tense story. As you go into this novel, know that is moves pretty slow. It wasn’t a page-turner for me. In fact, I didn’t much care for it until I read some of the commentary about the story. Take this one on but judge it based on its times. Don’t expect a Stephen King thriller here. It is just the story of a young girl who marries badly, nothing larger than life.
