Review: Rebecca

Rebecca
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Middle age widower marries a girl a year after the death of his statuesque wife. This girl struggles in the shadow of this woman whose standard up to which she cannot possible live. Only it all falls apart.

I like the last ~50 pages best. Everyone starts getting past the obfuscation of trying to act like who they think others want them to be. It shifts from an accounting of boring diary days to drama, risk, and events.
