Rebecca – Book Review

rebeccaI recently finished reading Rebecca by Daphne Du Marier. A tiny bit slow to start but I pushed through to the first 100 pages, reading it out loud to myself to focus, and then it was my jam.

At first, the narrator (whose name is never relieved) was annoying, a pushover and a 21-year-old who was easily persuaded into marrying a 40-year-old man, which I was very bothered by. Come to think of it, I didn’t like any of the characters in this book but in a good way. I felt like the main characters were all morally gray (a mix between good and bad) and I love that in a book.

At 200 pages, we were steaming along a well-paced, beautifully written and subtly creepy story, a classic and one that I hope you read. It’s definitely worth it.

My rating: 4/5 stars

If you’ve read Rebecca, what did you think about it?
