it was amazing

Recommended for: anyone

Today's Jamaica Inn is a bit of a forlorn tourist trap so read this before you pass by. It really is a rollicking good story and it picks up on Du Maurier's grand theme - that people are complex, unknowable until the end and almost impossible to judge. Doing the right thing is never clear when you don't have all the facts. She is mistress of story-telling and writing. The book is a deserved classic.
