Roseanne Another great book. I like this type of novel.


Rosemarie It has one of the best opening lines in literature.

Yes, it does! I read it a few years ago in a GR recommendation thread and so appreciated the mystery. Not an overall happy book, quite macabre and brilliant. I want to read more by her.


Kirsten  (kmcripn) One of my favorites!!


Roseanne I never figure anything out before the ending. I’m clueless. I was shocked.


Allison ༻hikes the bookwoods༺ (allisonhikesthebookwoods) I just finished this book and I loved it so much! Here’s a link to my full review.

Ella (ellamc) | 300 comments Ohhh, I just read this at the very beginning of the GAR (it was my first GAR book, I think, at least on purpose) and LOVED it. I'm renting the movie this weekend if I get some time.

Alfred Hitchcock did a splendid job with this story. The screenplay doesn't match the book in a couple places, but I have still watched it more than once because it's so good. Enjoy!

Great Movie. It's my favorite Hitchcock Film.

Paula I happened to come across an image with your name on it and I used it for a GAR tweet.

I read ¨My Cousin Rachel¨ for a GR group read a couple of years ago, and it wound up being one of the best books I read that year!


Kirsten  (kmcripn) Daphne Du Maurier is incredible.

"My Cousin" made me want to re-visit this one, and read others by her.
