poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Oh how I wish I could rewind the past month and start all over again Then I could pick up Rebecca and experience this breathtaking novel once as f for the first time Truth be told this wasn t actually my first time reading this uintessential piece of classic gothic literature However I am ashamed to say that the number of years that have passed between my first reading and this recent one combined with what I like to call a lingering case of momnesia effectively rendered this reading very much like a first time For that I am actually grateful because I completely mmersed and surrendered myself to the beautiful writing of the remarkably talented Daphne du MaurierThe unnamed narrator The Cat Club is annexperienced and nsecure young woman with not much of a future to speak of unless becoming a companion to an overbearing busybody by the name of Mrs Van Hopper could be called a promising prospect So when the handsome mysterious and wealthy Maxim de Winter seems to take an nterest and offers a much enticing alternative that of being his wife what A Witch Alone is a girl to do but accept The honeymoon at an end the newly married couple returns to Manderley Max de Winter s estate Manderleytself s a major character n this novel I could sense Der Spinnenmann it almost as a living breathing entity the descriptions of this magnificent place were so masterfully crafted I felt asf I were sitting right there with Mrs de Winter as she approached Manderley for the first time Suddenly I saw a clearing Stundenplan in the dark drive ahead and a patch of sky andn a moment the dark trees had thinned the nameless shrubs had disappeared and on either side of us was a wall of colour blood red reaching far above our heads We were amongst the rhododendrons There was something bewildering even shocking about the suddenness of their discovery The woods had not prepared me for them They startled me with their crimson faces massed one upon the other Open Source Fuzzing Tools inncredible profusion showing no leaf no twig nothing but the slaughterous red luscious and fantastic unlike any rhododendron plant I had seen before these were monsters rearing to the sky massed like a battalion too beautiful I thought too powerful they were not plants at all Rhododendrons Red Rebecca She Ralph Peer and the Making of Popular Roots Music is everywhere The second Mrs de Winter the only name by which she will ever bedentified had not expected the ceaseless competition from the deceased first Mrs de winter Rebecca Rebecca with a capital R written with such confidence a confidence that even transcends death She lingers Crossing Bok Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship Freedom in the morning room she lurksn the gallery she tarries Beauty Wreckage (Broken Crowns in the cottage by the beach But most of all Rebecca dwells within the minds of everyone livingn the West Country along the rugged coast of England Max de Winter becomes a brooding and aloof husband once back within the clutches of Manderley and Rebecca s memory The new Mrs de Winter The Cuckolds Calling is tormented by her own fantasies of this formidable adversary Since the novels cleverly written from the perspective of this na ve young woman the reader becomes Motherland: A Novel intimate with the psychological turmoil she endures Shes also subject to the criticism and malice of the sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers Mrs Danvers worshiped Rebecca during her life and continues to do so even after her death I absolutely loved to hate this dark and Fractions: The First Half of The Fall Revolution intimidating woman Once I glanced up at her and once I met her eyes dark and sombern that white face of hers nstilling nto me I knew not why a strange feeling of disuiet of foreboding I tried to smile and could not I found myself held by those eyes and could not I found myself held by those eyes had no light no flicker of sympathy towards meEvery single character The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap is drawn skillfully and comes to life within the pages of this book The tension builds and one cannot help becoming entangled with the suspenseful buildup of events leading to the climax I was transported to another time and place and was perfectly mesmerized I can t say much without gettingnto spoiler territory Latin for Children Primer a DVDs Chant CD if you have not yet read this masterpiece Just grab a copy soon and experience this one please Thiss the best of the best and s going on that very special bookshelf at home I wondered how many people there were n the world who suffered and continued to suffer because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve and n their blindness and folly built up a great distorted wall n front of them that hid the truth This was what I had done I had built up false pictures Brazilian Surrender in my mind and sat before them I had never had the courage to demand the truth This has to be one of the best and most complete books I have ever read Each element plot characters twists suspense climax all oft perfect If I had one criticism t might be a slightly slow start but with the awesome payoff that s hardly worth mentioningThe plot I have to be honest I judged a book by ts cover and title I thought okay Rebecca an elegant woman a curly font probably another cheesy classic romance I ll read t because Und Nietzsche weinte its one you are supposed to read but I doubt I will think t s great I have never been so wrong Mystery Peer Support

recognition at the mention of a place called Manderley Daphne du Maurier leased a place called Menabilly which became the basis for the fictional Manderley Aren t we glad she changed the name Just say Manderley a few times and then say Menabilly a few times If you are like me you linger over the vowels and consonants of Manderley and with Menabilly you just wantt off your tongue as uickly as

Manderley wherever I sat evenn my thought and The Way of the Scarlet Pimpernel in my dreams I met Rebecca I knew her figure now the long slim legs the small and narrow feet Her shoulders broader than mine the capable clever hands Hands that could steer a boat could hold a horse Hands that arranged flowers made the models of ships and wrote Max from Rebecca on the fly leaf of a book I knew her face too small and oval the clear white skin the cloud of dark hair I knew the scent she wore I could guess her laughter and her smile If I heardt even among a thousand others I should recognise her voice Rebecca always Rebecca I should never be rid of Rebecca Waiting for Mrs de Winter Stevie is the number one fan and torchbearer of Rebecca Mrs Danvers Despite the best efforts of our young lady shes fighting a losing battle trying to win over Mrs Danvers by being deferential Mrs Danvers Fairy Tales is loyal to the ghostly presence of Rebecca even to the point of preserving her room and possessions as they were when she was alive The that the new Mrs de Winter concedes the less respect she feels she has to show to the new mistress of the house Mrs Danvers played by Judith Anderson and Mrs de Winter played by Joan Fontainen the 1940 Alfred Hitchcock movie We stood there by the door staring at one another I could not take my eyes away from hers How dark and sombre they were n that white skull s face of hers how malevolent how full of hatred You will feel yourself wanting to cheer as our heroine begins to gain confidence and as she begins to grow nto her role we see Mrs Danvers start to diminish and with her the haunting presence of Rebecca Of course just as things start to go right things start to go very wrong I was really surprised to learn that an edition of Rebecca was used as the key to a code book by the Germans during World War Two It s not believed that the book was ever used for passing nformation because a captured radio section made the Germans suspect that the book as a code had been compromised Ken Follett used this Moving into Meditation: A 12-Week Mindfulness Program for Yoga Practitioners idean his book The Key to Rebecca Other The

something sinister surrounding the walls of Manderley For me the sign of a well written book s the fact that I was on the edge of my seat despite having watched the movie several times I was ensnared by the plot feeling the same anxiety for the characters that I would have f they had been living breathing creatures n my own sphere of the universe The character studies explored The North American Journals of Prince Maximilian of Wied: April–September 1833 in this book have turned out to be anmportant addition to the hall of fame of literary characters You will not forget Mrs Danver s spiteful nsidious behavior or the tortured Heathcliffesue Maximilian de Winter or the numerous supporting cast that adds color and substance to the shadows of the plot If you like gothic romance with your cup of Earl Grey you will find this book an ndispensable part of your library kept ready to hand for those days when you want to be swept away from a dreary sky and a rain splattered window The road to

compared to the first time I read this book several years ago Here s the key Thiss not a romance novel It s a psychological suspense novel As I reread Rebecca with this René Lévesque in mind I had a much greater appreciation forts artistry the way Daphne du Maurier skillfully used words to create a mood and ncrease the suspenseWe can never go back again that much s certain The past Standby Nurse is still close to us The things we have tried to forget and put behind us would stir again and that sense of fear of furtive unrest struggling at length to blind unreasoning panic now mercifully stilled thank God mightn some manner unforeseen become a living companion as Decolonising the Mind it had beforeThe narrator a young and painfully self conscious girls a paid companion to Mrs Van

but adds to the underlying tension and sense of oppression The second Mrs de Winter thinks they are contented and perhaps they are but they are deeply damaged as well living a sort of half life Mrs Danvers s uite the character one wonders how much her presence n Rebecca s childhood Russian Empire: Space, People, Power, 1700-1930 influenced the person Rebecca became And Rebecca herself well
