review by . July 15, 2010
I read this book for a newly formed book club that I recently joined. I was excited when they said it had been turned into a Hitchcock film and anticipated exciting suspense throughout the whole novel. The first 250 or so pages left me disappointed with the whining and random made up stories the unnamed main character provides. I was frustrated with her character and the man she marries, Maxim, who snatches this girl half his age to wed and then appears emotionally abusive.      …

The last 150 pages are so exciting, but everything before that is a struggle. Lots and lots of character development, but nearly a total lack of plot development before the last bit. But the last really is a great classic story and makes reading the whole thing worth it.

One of the all-time great opening lines: "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again..."

A classic by the mistress of mystery. Not to be missed!
