Michael (knowledgelost) Looks like our next book will be Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier; Which I adore. We will be starting reading this book in October so you have time to get a copy of this book if needed.


Kaylene Fantastic! I've been wanting to read this for a long time :)

I'm looking forward to a re-read too Elaine:)


Yuliya (yuliyalovestoread) | 27 comments I recently read it for other book club and this is was my first book by this writer and I really fall in love in style in intrigue setting of books by Daphne Du Maurier . I also watched two movies (1940, 1997) but still book is better hold you scared and intrigued then movies. I read several more novels and stories by Daphne Du Maurier and always enjoy by her writing style, it so romantic and at the same time very modern.

Coin toss Joanne;) Enjoy, whichever one you read first:)


message 29: by Mish (new) - rated it 5 stars

Mish | 270 comments I've just started reading Rebecca. I'm only 50pages in but I can already tell that I'm hooked and can't wait to get home to read more (currently at work).

The writing is simply superb; it's dark & mysterious from the very first chapter. It reminds me a little of Carlos Ruiz Zafón books/writing...do you think?


Michael (knowledgelost) I think the gothic elements of Carlos Ruiz Zafón's books must be inspired by Daphne du Maurier's writing style.

No I don't Mish, it's absolutely years since I read it...so it'll be like a new read for me I think. From all the comments, I know I must read it again though!


Sharon | 13 comments I've just finished. A reread for me also. Loved it. Hoping to find some time to rewatch the movie also.
Have a Happy Christmas everyone :)
