Rebecca is one of those books that stays with you long after you've turned the last page. It's haunting, it's even a little terrifying, it creates moral conflict, and the plot builds and builds from the first sentence until it's crescendo near the end. Anna Massey is the absolute perfect narrator for this story - she bring atmosphere to the story. I am in awe of the brilliance of Daphne Du Maurier in creating Rebecca. The story starts with the ending. It is written in first person from the second Mrs. de Winter - we are inside her head, but we never know her name. And the main character, who never actually is physically present in the entire story because she is dead, fills every page. It's brilliant. I love it. I'm sure you will too.
