    "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. "

    "I didn't enjoy Rebecca too much. It feels a bit dated. While the plot is pretty decent, it's hard to connect with. The way society seems to function in this novel feels a bit archaic."

    "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. "

    "I read this book and it truly is a classic. It's not a modern suspense thriller, but if you have an open mind you'll enjoy it like I did. I recommend finding a hard copy book. It just makes it more real."

    "Rebecca is a story of a girl who gets married at a very young age and the author does an excellent job of putting the reader into her shoes. You will feel every emotion Rebecca does on this isolated journey set in the windswept Cornish coast."

    "This is a fantasy example of a book that someone who liked Gone Girl would enjoy. This is a classic romance tale that features a powerful female character."

    "I'm not so sure about this one. It's a specific kind of book here that's not for everyone. I think if you like Romance it's more for you but if not find something else."
  • Samuel Mason
    Written on March 2, 2018
    "At nearly 450 pages of an interesting storyline, Rebecca does fall into the category of a book with a "One Word Title" and can be considered one of the better written ones. This is a story of a man's dead wife's story being kept alive by his housekeeper."
  • Austin Knight

    "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."
  • Zachary Duncan
    Written on May 10, 2018
    "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."
