What the community says about Rebecca
- #1 of 156
in What are the best thriller books"I typically don't read many popular thriller books. The subject matter doesn't usually interest me. However, this novel captivated me from beginning to end. The romance in this novel helped me to stay interested in the book. The relationships were presented in a very real way. In some thrillers, I often second-guess the characters motives because they don't seem feasible. Not in this book. The rich descriptions in the book made it easy for me to visualize the settings. I would definitely recommend this book!""Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderly again....super spooky right? This is a psychological suspense novel that unfolds in a dark gloomy gothic setting. In Rebecca, the surprises keep coming until literally the last page, making it an enjoyable read. "
- "Rebecca is considered by several people as a classic of gothic romance. It tells us the story of a nameless, shy and not to special protagonist who marries Maxim de Winter, a rich and charming man that doubles her age. When they move to his house, she is haunted by the pressence of Rebecca, his late wife. I think this is an interesting story, but too descriptive for my taste and the main character is weak and easy to manipulate. There is a sense of mistery the whole book, which kept me going, there was something off about Maxim. The relationship was confusing to me, he seemed to not love the MC but turns out he did? The setting is beautiful and helps make the atmosphere of the book something unique. "
- "The best books by Daphne du Maurier include "Rebecca", which is about a lady who's future looks bleak until she meets a handsome widower whose sudden proposal of marriage takes her by surprise. Boasting an average customer rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars based on 1,602 Amazon customer reviews, I would strongly recommend this book."
- "This book is an absolute classic. I loved the first person narrative style of storytelling. Mrs. Danvers was incredibly creepy. As more and more of Rebecca's life was revealed it was clear she was a psychopath. If you like Gothic novels with twisted and dark romance then you must pick up a copy of this book."
- "Rebecca is a first person narrative of a heroine that keeps the reader in suspense from the very beginning; "I dreamt again of Manderley" until the sinister end. The book as well written and captivating piece of gothic fiction that will leave the reader feeling as if they have actually wandered the grounds of the old windswept houses of Manderley."
