Poor, plain Mrs. de Winter. She scurries around Manderley like a frightened little mouse, fraught with insecurity, terrified of the servants, sweet and young and stupidly in love. Despite all this yearning, her emotionally catatonic husband dreams only of her predecessor, Rebecca. And Rebecca's presence clings to Manderley like a sinister negligee. Daphne du Maurier applies pressure expertly; she knows all about the kinetic urgency of a ghost story, and the appeal of a good madonna/whore dichotomy.

— Carly

After reading "Rebecca," you'll pull your collar against the fog and look at everyone askance, assuming they have a dark, sordid history and cannot under any circumstance be trusted. It's true. They cannot. Do not trust them.

— Landon
