Reviews

"One of the most influential novels of the twentieth century, Rebecca has woven its way into the fabric of our culture with all the troubling power of myth or dream." --Sarah Waters

"Du Maurier is in a class by herself." --THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Excellent . . . Perfect . . . Mastery from surprise to surprise." --CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

"Addictive and breathtaking. Its blending of melodrama and subtlety is ingenious. The Cornish setting never quite leaves the imagination." --THE INDEPENDENT

"This chilling, suspenseful tale is as fresh and readable as it was when it was first written." --THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
