I've loved the Hitchcock film of Rebecca for years and have finally gotten around to listening to the audio book. Anna Massey does a wonderful job, as the other reviewer said, of bringing each character to life. The way I described it to my sister was that her voice for Mrs. Van Hopper made me want to reach out and slap the woman - the voice was perfect. The book made me appreciate the movie more and I must watch it again.
I gave up listening to this one a couple of hours into it because I could not stand hearing the fake-unbelievable-falsetto voice the narrator used for all the female characters for one more minute. His voices for the male characters and general narration were good (and the reason for the second star), but his women were absurd. That and the "end of disc one...beginning of disc two" made this a wasted credit.
