Rezension zu "Rebecca" von Daphne DuMaurier

not really sure about this...
ichundelainevor 3 Jahren

I always shied away from books written by Daphne duMarier, because for some reason I always thought that she wrote old school romance novels. So it came to me as a surprise, that she is actually more of a goth novel writer and dabbles in dark and scary stories.

Intrigued by all the praise she received by fellow readers as well as by her biography, I tried my luck with the audio book version of her famous novel Rebecca. 

The female protagonist is one of those poor needy relations that has to travel along with some well-meaning family member or other because she has no means of her own. When she meets widower Maxin de Winter her luck changes radically, he kinda falls in love with her and asks her to marry him and follow him to Manderley, his huge and famous mansion, after only a very short time of being acquainted. This already shows how freaking NAIVE she is!! Anyway, they get married and move to Manderley, where the creepy and rather bossy Mrs. Danvers resides over the household. Mrs. Danvers also knows de former Mrs. de Winter (Rebecca) and is appalled by the new one and tries to make her life miserable as best and as subtle as she can. While being passively aggressively terrorized by Mrs. Danvers, our female protagonist discovers that there are certain secrets revolving around the death of her predecessor...

The story is somewhat forseeable and there wasn't any real excitement, so I can give this enterprise only three stars. Even though they mashed in some nice sound effects/ music into the audio book version and the speaker was well chosen,  the whole story seemed dowdy. Despite of me adoring the Mrs. Danvers character, whom I suspect to be a closeted lesbian, this book didn't do much for me.

TorstenBvor 11 Jahren

Schöne und interessante Erzählungen von Daphne. Nach der einen oder anderen Geschichte hält man kurz inne und denkt über sein eigenes Leben nach. Mit viel Poesie und Erzählcharme verfasst.
