Rebecca (1938) by Daphne Du Maurier

A still from the Alfred Hitchcock film version of Rebecca

Book Review
Rebecca (1938)
by Daphne Du Maurier

  I bought a new paperback edition of Rebecca at an independent bookstore in Exeter, New Hampshire.  Rebecca is a genre hit- with the Alfred Hitchcock film helping maintain its evergreen status in book stores. Because Rebecca is a straight up genre exercise, any discussion of the plot risks the disclosure of "spoilers."  Suffice it to say that Rebecca continues to be read today because it is a very good, very fun book.
