    " One of the 3 best novels I ever read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alwa | 12/22/2013

    " Another day, another weird Daphne du Maurier deep cut found under a table at a suburban book sale for fifteen cents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Mahaffie | 12/3/2013

    " A good read with a good storyline. I just have this habit of looking for some redemptive moment when there is a main character as ugly and vile as Julius Levy, and there was none to be found for me in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yudi | 11/10/2013

    " Any Psych major will recognize the many pathologies.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hazel | 9/22/2013

    " This was a gift from my English teacher when I was 13/14. Rich in content and texture, with themes on the outsider, and on capitalism that are still relevant. An underrated Du Maurier novel. 'Something for nothing.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Labmom | 9/7/2013

    " Much like in "The Parasites", the author makes unlikeable characters interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marita | 6/28/2013

    " Very interesting book about a bad,egoistic, driven man. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Batchelor | 10/31/2012

    " Du Maurier is completely blowing my mind at present, absolute genius, if you've never read any do so at once. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Newcomb | 11/28/2011

    " A lavish tale but noticeably pre holocaust "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 10/25/2011

    " The third Dpahne Du Maurier book I have read as I wanted to try a more 'unknown' one. Absorbing as ever, it is amazing the characters that Daphne creates. Julius is a tortured soul, but so intriguing. Recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 5/22/2011

    " I don't know what else to say other then that I really enjoyed it. Rebecca was so oppressive she became a character in her own right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/21/2011

    " All the characters keep me guessing of what is going to happen next and what secrets are being kept. If you have read don't tell me the ending I am still reading it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 5/20/2011

    " a very good book, not a romantic like you would think. its about murder and mystery. it my be a challenge book but next to Frankenstein its one of my favorites yet. i recommend it to anyone with a want to read. Its a great book, glad i read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 5/19/2011

    " I got the twist, but not too early. Not a bad mystery at all except for wanting to punch nameless heroin for being such a helpless sooky lala throughout most of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claudia | 5/18/2011

    " I always have a hard time enjoying a book when I don't like the main character, and that was the case with this one. I did like the mystery enough to keep reading, and the story did have some genuine surprises, but I was just so frustrated with the narrator. BTW, why doesn't she have a name? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 5/15/2011

    " I adore this book. I'm not sure I'd teach it to freshmen again (especially not non-English major freshmen) because of its emphasis on language rather than plot and characterization, but I do adore it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 5/15/2011

    " Romantic suspense...just finished Jane Eyre before reading this book and couldn't help seeing so many parallels to it. Thought the book was ok but wouldn't recommend it strongly unless you really really enjoy romance with a lingering sense of dread and a slowly unfolding storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denice | 5/15/2011

    " One of my most favorite books - EVER! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alix | 5/14/2011

    " I almost died reading this book, pure agony. This is not a classic that should be considered a classic. Pure dullness, it took me forever to finish it. :/ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 5/14/2011

    " Mmmm lots of buttered crumpets! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 5/14/2011

    " The sense of supernatural paranoia is so evocative as to be almost frightening. Nearly everyone who has loved understands the mysterious hold the dreaded Ex can have over us.

    The ending is something else.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayna | 5/14/2011

    " Thank you Mrs. Echevarria freshman English @ Fontbonne Academy for having us read this. AWESOME! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Verena | 5/14/2011

    " I listened to this as an audiobook from Audible. It took me a long time to get into it - the start was quite slow - but I really enjoyed the story once they returned to Manderley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 5/13/2011

    " I loved this book in 9th/10th grade, and used the opening scene as a monologue for a speech competition. "

Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story "The Birds," all of which were subsequently made into films—the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
