This was such a hauntingly suspenseful story. When Maxim de Winter takes his new bride to Manderly for the first time, I had such an eerie feeling in my stomach. I enjoyed all the revelations experienced by the new Mrs. de Winter (nice touch, never giving her a first name). She came off as clumsy, inexperienced, and sometimes annoyingly juvenile in her behavior with staff and her new husband Maxim. I did not find Maxim to be a decent sort of man and Mrs. Danvers was impossible. But, the story read like a poem or a painting and it remained suspenseful to the end.
