Omg I can't believe it! A retelling of Rebecca, Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca??? I have to get my hands on it! Hopefully Paige Harbison's New Girl lives up to my expectations! utterly excited!

I loved this! It wasn't the same as Du Maurier, but the atmosphere, everything was the same. I loved it loved it loved it. It doesn't make much sense if you've never read Rebecca, but if you read this and love it, you'll definitely want to go pick up Rebecca by Du Maurier. Sure the differences stand out, and might seem unrealistic, but I think it's a good rendition of the classic. Of course, it would be good not to compare it to the original, since some of the things are very different and therefore might make someone really not like this novel, but I liked it. It was good.
