What a wonderful novel! It certainly deserves five stars. It made my heart beats faster while reading it.

The novel is written in first-person narration. The narrator told it as a flashback.

I enjoyed it from the very beginning until the end.

There were a lot of surprises in the novel. I felt sympathy for Maxim though her murdered his first wife. As for Rebbecca, at first I loved her when they talked about how beautiful and kind and clever she was. Then, I hated her and finally I felt sympathy for

Well it would be more interesting if I have read the original version that was written by Daphne Du Maurier. I decided on that low rating probably because of that reason, the events where flying from one to another, some facts were thrust upon you here and there ... Yet I had really enjoyed reading it, besides it didnt take so much time, for I finished it in one day. So the next book I'm gonna read inchaAllah will be " Gone with the Wind" and I'm real excited about it for it IS a Loooooong book.
This book was my prize for 100% attendance at our school's Annual Prize Distribution in 2002 or when I was in 8th grade.
I have been a fan of Rebecca since then...and this edited version is a very good effort; it keeps the magic of the original text intact.

See my review of the unabridged version here:
This was a good read - the style kind of reminded me of Jane Eyre though the story takes place in the 1920s. I did think it was curious that the author never gave the first name of the character in the book.
I also thought that the book ended abruptly and I was hoping for more of a happy ending. Overall I would recommend it.

For a novel written so long ago, I thought this was pretty good. At times I got bogged down in the language-- three pages describing the flowers kind of got to me. But once I got to the half-way mark, it really picked up and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest. Good entertainment but perhaps a little heavy-handed with the flourish.

Blah. The narrator is such a drip! When she nearly had a heart attack over some broken china I just stopped reading the book altogether.

This is a simplified children's version of "Rebecca" with a word-glossary in the back.
I couldn't stop reading as the story got closer to the end. It's really good.
