really liked it
Read in February, 2009

Updated Jane Eyre. Cept empathises with patriarchal paranoia in its horror of female sexuality/ independence. The unnamed narrator and Rebecca represent a division of self. Appealed to me cos the romance demonstrates masochism as enacted idolatry.

Sarah I'm glad I'm not the only one amused by "Rebecca's review of Rebecca." How would the book review the woman, I wonder...
