DIABOLICAL!!! And I loved it! Rebecca has been on my "to read" list for years, and I finally read it. I will say, that after reading a lot of contemporary fiction, it took me a while to adjust to the language in Rebecca. It was written in 1938, and reads a bit more like a Victorian novel. But sticking with it was so worth it! I love a good gothic romance/mystery, and this was just about PERFECT! I'd call it Jane Eyre meets Gone Girl (I was not a HUGE fan of Gone Girl, but there were some moments in this novel when I thought of those crazy people) ;) By the way, Alfred Hitchcock adapted Rebecca to film in 1940 -- now I need to watch it.
