Pressestimmen

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. A stunning book -- Sarah Waters Addictive and breathtaking. Its blending of melodrama and subtlety is ingenious. The Cornish setting never quite leaves the imagination Independent Possibly the best crime novel ever written. Right from page one you are gripped by a palpable sense of suspense -- Hilary Bonner Express With one of the most evocative first lines ever, Daphne du Maurier's fifth novel has everything a reader could ask for ... Psychologically astute and disturbingly romantic, Rebecca was an immediate bestseller on publication in 1938 and has cast a sinister spell ever since Marie Claire A brilliantly constructed novel - the ultimate in psychological suspense, instantly gripping and haunting, Rebecca will stay with you for ever. -- Alex Barclay Psychologies I am reminded of how profoundly du Maurier changed the way I felt about myself, how she engaged and excited me with her writing. Julie Myerson The DAILY TELEGRAPH 'As a new generation of readers are introduced to the wicked housekeeper Mrs Danvers and learn Maxim de Winter's terrible secret, this chilling, suspenseful tale is as fresh and readable as it was when it was first written, more than 60 years ago.' Excellent entertainment ... du Maurier created a scale by which modern women can measure their feelings. Stephen King

Synopsis

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again ...Working as a lady's companion, the heroine of Rebecca learns her place. Life begins to look very bleak until, on a trip to the South of France, she meets Maxim de Winter, a handsome widower whose sudden proposal of marriage takes her by surprise. She accepts, but whisked from glamorous Monte Carlo to the ominous and brooding Manderley, the new Mrs de Winter finds Max a changed man. And the memory of his dead wife Rebecca is forever kept alive by the forbidding Mrs Danvers ...Not since Jane Eyre has a heroine faced such difficulty with the Other Woman. An international bestseller that has never gone out of print, Rebecca is the haunting story of a young girl consumed by love and the struggle to find her identity.

Format: Taschenbuch
I've given this book four, rather than five stars because I haven't read many books which I thought were perfect. Even this one has its flaws (such as a rather pedestrian narrative style). But those flaws are minor in comparison to the truly compelling characters and gripping tale woven by Du Maurier. I only just recently read this for the first time and I was surprised to find that it was a much better read than I thought it would be. I love the Hitchcock movie and was worried that the book wouldn't be as good, but boy was I wrong! The suspense is chilling from the moment the new Mrs. De Winter arrives at Manderley. Du Maurier's greatest achievement is to have created a narrator who is so young and inexperienced that Rebecca (who of couse is never present in the novel) seems more alive than our heroine! In a way, the heroine (who remains unnamed, in what must be one of the master strokes of the novel) becomes more interesting as she, like Mrs. Danvers, becomes more and more obsessed with the dead Rebecca. The slight hint of a lesbian attachment between Rebecca and "Danny" adds spice to the otherwise conventional romance aspect of the novel. In fact, I found this story interesting as a tale of intimate relationships between women - even Maxim, the main male in the book fades into the background as Rebecca beomes more prominent in everyone's memory. I could not put this down and was glad to find that I liked it as much as the movie!

As a middle-aged male, I am probably not the typical reader of "Rebecca". I raced through it in one weekend, careening through the many hair-pin turns that come one upon another in the last third of the book. The reviewers who complain of the slow pace of the first third should understand that the groundwork must be laid for the excitement to follow. I had to force myself to slow down so as to savor Ms. Du Maurier's enchanting descriptive writing style (being a gardener helps one appreciate the descriptions) . I must differ with all those who state that the main character remained un-named throughout the book. The main character was named... "Manderley".

Format: Taschenbuch
This book is one of the all-time greatest works of fiction, combining suspense, romance, and character development, all wrapped up in a mystery that is literally not resolved until the last page.
Modern readers should treat this story as a period piece of sorts; American readers in particular should bear in mind the differences between British and American cultures, and also the historical differences (Rebecca was published in 1938), otherwise they are apt to find the story 'slow' or 'dull.'
Like any great mystery writer, du Maurier throws out subtle clues in the first third of the story; about halfway through, she begins to resolve these clues, and from then on, the story races at full steam. *Don't let* the seemingly slow introduction stop you from finishing the book; patient readers will be well- rewarded when they see how brilliantly du Maurier sets up her surprises.
The story revolves around the unusual marriage of the young, unworldly narrator (whose first name is never revealed, one of the book's charming idiosyncrasies)to the brooding 'landed gentleman,' Maxim de Winter. When she arrives at his grand country manor, Manderly (the house is perhaps the book's most potent character), she is immediately confronted by the other characters' feelings about Rebecca, Maxim de Winter's flamboyant late wife.
Perhaps du Maurier's greatest accomplishment, character-wise, is the way she develops Rebecca, who is already dead when the main action of the story begins, and never really appears 'on-screen,' so to speak. Rebecca is very much alive in the memories of Maxim, the house servants, friends and family members, but most crucially, of her personal maid, Mrs. Danvers (and also of Rebecca's sleazy cousin, Jack Favel). It is Mrs.

Von Ein Kunde am 16. Januar 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Rebecca is in many ways a lot like Jane Eyre. Jane and Mrs. De Winter (her first name is never mentioned) both meet and fall in love with older men when they are very young and still fresh out of school. For Jane it is Mr. Rochester and for Mrs. De Winter it is Maxim De Winter. The two couples have short courtships and very suddenly they decide to get married. Unfortunately Jane and Mrs. De Winter each find that the men they love have darker and more sinister pasts than they had ever imagined. Jane responds to this by running away, but Mrs. De Winter embraces the new found secret because it makes her feel older and closer to Maxim. By the end of the books Jane and Mrs. De Winter are both portrayed as stronger and much more mature adult women.
But even if you didn't like Jane Eyre I think you will still like Rebbecca because Daphne DuMaurier combined several elements that weren't in Jane Eyre to make a fantastic book. She had a wonderful setting, a suspencful plot, interesting and developed characters, romance, and a very unexpected ending. Maxim's estate called Manderley is where most of the story unfolds. When the new Mrs. De Winter comes back from her honey moon Manderley is still ruled by Rebecca with her servants, her friends, and her furnishings. The new Mrs. De Winter must live in the middle of all of this and try to rise up to Rebecca's standards. In this book there is no way of predicting the future because it takes so many twists and turns. You never know something important is happening until it is over. My favorite part of the book was its perfect blend of characters. There was the dark and loyal (to Rebecca) Mrs. Danvers, the diabolical Favell, contrasted with well meaning and kind Beatrice, the ever supporting and tactful Frank, and simple Ben.
