The Birds & Don't Look Now | [Daphne Du Maurier]

The Birds & Don't Look Now

Du Maurier is of course world famous for many of her novels. These two stories are perhaps even better known as films (The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock and Don't Look Now by Nic Roeg), but here we bring you the full terrifying texts, superbly read by Peter Capaldi, who brings the true dimension of these works to the imagination.

    "Five star everything"

    Peter Capaldi is a BRILLIANT actor and the stories are both excellent. Don't Look Now is troubling. The Birds is terrifying. Du Maurier did a great job on both.

    "Excellent reads of two classic Du Maurier stories"

    Two of the less typical Du Maurier stories -- short stories, not novels. Both are familiar from movies: Hitchcock's "The Birds" and "Don't Look Now" (1973) with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland. These original stories are as eerie as the movies. Superbly read here.

    "Images Burnt into My Brain"

    I have listened to The Birds and Don't Look Now once. There will not be a second reading or listening. Before you get the idea that I am panning these works, let me hasten to assure you, that Ms. Du Maurier's talents are unequaled. Peter Capaldi did an amazing performance of the works. Nevertheless, for me, there will not be a second reading ever. My nature could not endure it. To a lesser degree, I feel the same way about Rebecca, another Du Maurier work. She is so vivid, that she burns the images on the brain. Once is enough.

    I have never watched Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds only films clips and such. From what I remember from glimpses of the movie as I passed the drive in theaters, I just don't think Hitchcock could equal Du Maurier's images. What did Yogi Bera say, I liked the book best because the pictures were better? Well, the book is better but I am not equal to it at least not twice.

    Oh, I see that I failed to mention "Don't Look Now". It is a shock to one's system. Don't read it unless you have a strong constitution.
