Rebecca’s shadow is next to them.
“Rebecca” is the story of two women, one man, and a house “Manderley”. The book “Rebecca” by Daphne du Maurier is about love, past mysteries and life in high society. The author wants to tell us about some peoples problematic past, and also entertains us because in one way “Rebecca” is also a love story and a detective. A report on this book includes three major aspects: theme, style and value.
One aspect of the bo
The second aspect of “Rebecca” is its style. The story is told by the first person – the main character, and that is why we don’t even know Ms de Winters name. The style is quite carefree, slighty scented and owerwritten, that of a schoolgirl, trying to speak poetically, like an adult. Fooor the most, the book is made from dialogs, that is why the story is fast-mooving like in a love story or detective. Unfortunately no flashbacks or figurative language is used, because for me it would be easier to concentrate.
The final aspect of “Rebecca” is its value. This book is mainly interesting, because it is a love story with some characteristic marks of detective. I didn’t learn much new from this book, for me it was just an interesting book to read. However, there was one useful idea about life – the cost for the love should never be man’s identity – as it was in Ms de Winters life.
“Rebecca” is a love story, in which the good woman triumphs over the bad one. I liked this book, because it is a good bestseller, whith an unexpected and not a very happy ending. That is why “Rebecca” is a little bit better than a typical easy love story. I recommend this book to girls who like romantics, who like to cry when they read a book and who want to emote with all the characters of the book.
