With these words, the reader is ushered into an isolated gray stone mansion on the windswept Cornish coast, as the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter recalls the chilling events that transpired as she began her new life as the young bride of a husband she barely knew. For in every corner of every room were phantoms of a time dead but not forgotten - a past devotedly preserved by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers: a suite immaculate and untouched, clothing laid out and ready to be worn, but not by any of the great house's current occupants. With an eerie presentiment of evil tightening her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter walked in the shadow of her mysterious predecessor, determined to uncover the darkest secrets and shattering truths about Maxim's first wife - the late and hauntingly beautiful Rebecca.… (mais)

Detalhes da Obra

Rebecca de Daphne du Maurier (1938)

  1. 366
    Jane Eyre de Charlotte Brontë (chrisharpe, fannyprice, ladybug74, HollyMS, lottpoet)
    chrisharpe: There are some similarities between these two books: a young woman marries an older widower and moves to his mansion, where the marriage is challenged by the unearthly presence of the first wife.
    fannyprice: These two books reminded me a lot of each other but Rebecca was more modern and somewhat less preachy.
    HollyMS: Since Rebecca was published, observers have noticed that it has parallels to Jane Eyre. Both are dark stories about young women who marry wealthy Englishmen.
    lottpoet: I can see the bones of Jane Eyre in Rebecca
  2. 212
    My Cousin Rachel de Daphne Du Maurier (HollyMS, EllieH)
    HollyMS: Daphne Du Maurier's My Cousin Rachel has a similar theme as Rebecca.
  3. 131
    Jamaica Inn de Daphne Du Maurier (katie4098)
  4. 143
    The Thirteenth Tale de Diane Setterfield (citygirl)
  5. 100
    The Woman in White de Wilkie Collins (starfishian)
  6. 90
    Lady Audley's Secret de Mary Elizabeth Braddon (kiwiflowa, lahochstetler)
  7. 91
    The Scapegoat de Daphne Du Maurier (lois1)

    Lorna Doone de R. D. Blackmore (Sylak)
    Sylak: Another saga set against a hauntingly beautiful landscape - but this time its in Exmoor.
  9. 82
    We Have Always Lived in the Castle de Shirley Jackson (teelgee)
  10. 50
    Thornyhold de Mary Stewart (whymaggiemay)
    whymaggiemay: Although I believe that du Maurier was the better writer, Thornyhold and many others by Mary Stewart give the same suspenseful feeling.
  11. 51
    Don't Look Now de Daphne Du Maurier (Z-Ryan, cometahalley)
  12. 51
    The Forgotten Garden de Kate Morton (DaraBrooke)
  13. 84
    Mistress of Mellyn de Victoria Holt (kraaivrouw, FutureMrsJoshGroban, Headinherbooks_27)
  14. 30
    Freedom and Necessity de Steven Brust (bjappleg8)
    bjappleg8: first person narrative; ambiguous supernatural elements; slow unravelling of a mystery in a historical British setting
  15. 30
    Nine Coaches Waiting de Mary Stewart (Headinherbooks_27)
  16. 20
    Vera de Elizabeth von Arnim (bell7)
  17. 42
    A Sucessora de Carolina Nabuco (HollyMS, Usuário anônimo)
    HollyMS: When Rebecca came out, there were accusations that Daphne du Maurier had plagiarized A sucessora (The Sucessor) by Brazilian author Carolina Nabuco. Read it and decide for yourself.
  18. 10
    Bal masque de Elia Barceló (spiphany)
  19. 10
    Yes, My Darling Daughter de Margaret Leroy (WildMaggie)

This novel had a different effect on me than it would have had I not previously seen the film. This is because part of the impact rests on a completion overturning of the underlying assumption the narrator had about the title figure of this book. Therefore I knew this was a variation of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. Knowing this enabled me to concentrate on how the author employs foreshadowing throughout the book. She does this through her description of certain characters (the skull-like head of Mrs. Danvers), though the depiction of the landscape, such as the landscaping of the ancestral de Winter home, Manderlay.
The unnamed narrator is the second wife of the aristocrat Maximilian de Winter. Rebecca, who is dead before the story begins, was his first wife. When Max reveals to the second Mrs. de Winter what his marriage to Rebecca was really like, she only hears one message: the possibility that perhaps Max loves her despite her youth, inexperience, social awkwardness, and her mousy appearance. So overwhelmed is she by this that she unquestioningly accepts his account, and even becomes his co-conspirator in helping keep the actual facts of how Rebecca met her death hidden.
I enjoyed how this book embodies many of the conventions of the romance genre, yet subverts them. As the narrator writes, "I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say."
The narrator continually feels she is being compared to Rebecca. She exults when she learns differently, but her triumph is incomplete and short-lived. After all, the novel is named after that other woman, not after her, a woman whose name we do not even know. ( )

This was such a great read. It's a little slower at the start in Monaco but once they arrive in Manderley it's just extraordinary - so many plot twists and surprises. Of course the book is defined by and named after an absent character, but there are so many great characters in this - the unreliable unnamed narrator, the creepy and self-centred Maxim, the marvellously evil Mrs Danvers, the completely dreadful Mrs Van Hopper - all brilliant. The scenes with the police when things begin to unravel are fantastic, its dark and weird, but also funny. ( )

I'll admit that for the first hundred pages or so I wasn't extremely impressed with this book. The awkward conversations between the narrator and Maxim were okay but nothing special and that seemed to be all that the novel was. I reconciled myself to the idea that this was a slightly creepy character study. Then Mrs. Danvers started to try and ruin the narrator and then the plot went crazy-awesome melodramatic and I realized that this was the very finest of soap operas in book form. I can't wait to watch the movie. ( )

Excellent. Suspense plus wonderful writing makes This a perfect short read. ( )

Originally I decided to read this based on a YT recommendation for Halloween reads. I barely got through the first 1/3 of the book because I felt it was as slow as molasses to start off. However, based on recent updates and movie releases that have intrigued me further, I will be trying this book again.

If you enjoyed this book, great! Please continue to support the author in any way you can!

'You see,' she said, snapping the top, and walking down the stairs, 'you are so very different from Rebecca.'
We came to Manderley in early May, arriving, so Maxim said, with the first swallows and the bluebells. It would be the best moment, before the full flush of summer, and in the valley the azaleas would be prodigal of scent and the blood-red rhododendrons in bloom.
Forget it, Mrs. de Winter, forget it, as he has done, thank heaven, and the rest of us. We none of us want to bring back the past, Maxim least of all. And it's up to you, you know, to lead us away from it. Not to take us back there again.
If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.
