Does anyone else here consider "Rebecca" a mystery? A gothic to be sure, but it does have the elements of a good who-dun-it. Any comments welcome, but since I haven't read her other books, I don't know if they qualify as mysteries, so limit the discussion to "Rebecca", unless you feel another of her books qualifies. Thanks.

Hey y'all, I just finished reading Rebecca. I loved it for the most part, but it was a little bit too descriptive for me. I've been searching for things about Rebecca and soon I am going to rent the video..if they have it. This wasn't very romantic to me..but I guess thats because I like the mushy stuff. hehe. Anyway, I thought it a very good book. I finished it today and have a test on it tomorrow! ~Lea

I've been trying to do a research paper on how Daphne duMaurier's novel Rebecca may have reflected her life. I've found some things like how a lot of the characters are like people she knew in her life. The paper has to be 4-5 pages long, and I've used all my info. All I've got is two pages. All I can find are sites with other high school students like me, who don't know what they're talking about. Can someone who is a qualified source please help me???

Hi April,

There seems to be a lot of material here.

Although I have not explored all the info, it looks like it may be helpful.

I'm in 8th grade, and i read this book. it's very hard and chalenging, but after you disect the book and figure out every little thing, it becoems your favorite book. We were required to read this book, and i'm very happy we were. i highly suggest you do also.

Does anyone else here think that Rebecca was the most boring book you've ever read? I mean, EVERYBODY in this book has issues. And the narrator (you never do find out her real name do you) has the most of all of them. This book was a waste of my time.

read the book rebecca by daphne dumaurier for a book report and i absolutely loved the book and so did my teacher. this was a very interesting book and it will stay in my mind forever. when i read other books they will never measure up to rebecca.

William Butler, James Makepease Thackeray's Vanity Fair is the most boring book you'll ever read. Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel are two of the best atmospheric novels ever written.

DuMaurier wrote a facinating Bio on the Brontes (entitled The Brontes. Talk about people with a fairy tale life.

It is true that the character of Maxim in the story is morally ambiguous to say the least. That just makes the novel more intriguing. Du Maurier was really ahead of her time in creating such a complex and psychologically intriguing lead character.

I too have often wondered where the author got her inspiration for Manderley. I have wondered at the incredible detail in her descriptions. I read the book and feel it is a real place that I can visit over and over through reading the novel.
