Book of the Week

My Cousin Rachel
by Daphne Du Maurier

Have you read Rebecca? If not, get going! One of the best books ever. So when I saw My Cousin Rachel sitting on the bargain bookshelves of Barnes and Noble, of course I couldn't leave the poor book there! It promised mystery and romance--two things which I cannot live without--and it certainly delivered both and so much more! My lust for beauty was successfully fulfilled in the writings of Daphne Du Maurier. The best part? She never really fully unravels the mystery, but leaves it to the reader to decide. I thought that might drive me crazy, but I found that not ever knowing the name of the narrarator of Rebecca upset me more.

    I read Rebecca, I liked it well enough, though I think I took a different approach to it than most.
    I thought the book was hillarious. *NOTE: possible Spoilers do not read further if you haven't read the book.*
    I won't go into details but what the lady thinks the man thinks about Rebecca...she is so relieved to find what she thought was wrong, that what he did doesn't even faze her. It cracks me up.
    I must say, I love the name Manderly, (I may consider naming my daughter that.)
    Let me know how you like My Cousin Rachel.
