Re: Has anybody read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier?

It's very captivating, isn't it?  I read it for the first time when I was in junior high and most recently re-read it last August for the group I moderate here on the Book Clubs.

I've always thought the ending was very unexpected - so you've got something to look forward to :smileyhappy:  Daphne du Maurier was a very interesting person and I would like to have asked her a few questions about Rebecca.

Re: Has anybody read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier?

I looove Rebecca. I saw the movie first a few years ago. It's an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and he's one of my all time favorites.  It's very very Hitchcock. 

 

The ending is awesome and in the movie it's really dramatic and intense!  Of course read the book, but don't miss the movie either, it's a classic.

Re: Has anybody read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier?

It's about a really young woman that marrys a man she barely knows. The man is way older than her. and basically, the girl finds out shocking secrets about her husband's first wife- the beatiful Rebecca.
