    Jane Eyre door Charlotte Brontë (chrisharpe, fannyprice, ladybug74, HollyMS, lottpoet)
    chrisharpe: There are some similarities between these two books: a young woman marries an older widower and moves to his mansion, where the marriage is challenged by the unearthly presence of the first wife.
    fannyprice: These two books reminded me a lot of each other but Rebecca was more modern and somewhat less preachy.
    HollyMS: Since Rebecca was published, observers have noticed that it has parallels to Jane Eyre. Both are dark stories about young women who marry wealthy Englishmen.
    lottpoet: I can see the bones of Jane Eyre in Rebecca

Well, I feel as though I've missed something crucial, as everyone has raved about this novel and how amazing it is. I can't say that I agree. I enjoyed it, to an extent, and the prose was quite lovely, but I don't see myself ever turning to re-read it, unlike books that I love, such as Jane Eyre (and I think the comparison with that book is thin, personally.) Yes, they were twists that I didn't see coming, but there were a few that I predicted as well (and no: I haven't seen the Hitchcock film.) A good book? Sure. The quintessential romantic suspense novel? Perhaps to some... I'm just not sold. ( )

I really enjoyed this! I did have a bit of a hard time getting into this one at first because there is so much scene setting but as I went on I realized how important all that scene setting is for building the tension and imagery that is so important to this story.

Du Maurier does so much interesting character work in this and I'm sure I missed some of the nuance and layers present in this story. The latter half where we get more of the mystery and suspense was more interesting to me but it only works because of level of detail we get about Manderley and all the characters in the first part. I think if you like mystery and suspense books and gothic fiction this is a really good book to go back to and see how this really set the stage for a lot of elements of those genres. I really appreciated this book and I'm very glad I read it. ( )

Reread this classic and loved it even more this time around. Classic. Profound. ( )
  JoniMFisher | Oct 5, 2021 |
Du Maurier does two things really well... She creates Rebecca, a perfect picture of how nasty a woman can be and she creates Mrs. De Winter #2, a perfect example of how jealous of others/obsessively judgmental of herself a woman can be. ( )

Read this again for the first time in about 15 years. Such a fun page-turner, but the overwritten style is pretty off-putting to my adult self. The afterword suggested that the style is intentionally meant to evoke the narrator's gaucheness, especially at the start, but I don't know if I'm convinced by that. The sense of menace is usually very well done, but it tips over into melodrama a bit too often - very distracting. Still, the plot is as exciting as ever, even if you know it, and the ambiguity of the narrator's fate and Maxim's version is very clear. I don't know if it's quite the great work of literature some seem to think it is, but it's definitely got more depth and complexity than the average thriller. Plus some very beautiful descriptions of the Cornish countryside. A good winter read. ( )

"Rebecca is a lowbrow story with a middlebrow finish,” announced The Times Literary Supplement when Daphne du Maurier’s bestselling novel was first issued in 1938. Critic V.S. Pritchett was even more dismissive in his review, announcing that Rebecca "would be here today, gone tomorrow." The novel did generate positive coverage in Good Housekeeping and Ladies Home Journal, but that kind of praise did more harm than good in elite literary circles.... [the] novel has slowly climbed the path from lowbrow to highbrow in the eight decades since its initial publication, and is now more likely encountered on a college syllabus than at a supermarket checkout counter. You will now find Rebecca on the assigned reading lists of classes on gender politics, British fiction, Gothic style and other academic subjects.... Rebecca ranks among the most acute literary explorations of jealousy.... In truth, plot plays only a small part in the lasting success of this novel. The story itself is simple, and even the supposedly surprising twists are often telegraphed long in advance. What sets Rebecca apart from its peers is its author’s mastery of tone and mood, emotion and psychology.
