Rebecca

(2)
A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick

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.

This special edition of Rebecca includes excerpts from Daphne du Maurier's The Rebecca Notebook and Other Memories, an essay on the real Manderley, du Maurier's original epilogue to the book, and more.
Portrait
Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989) has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story "The Birds," all of which were subsequently made into films-the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

All the way through, I was wondering how the mansion Manderley would look like if it was real. A young woman marries an older gentleman, Maxim de Winter. Still, everyone is thinking about his late first wife Rebecca. So the new Mrs de Winter feels unloved and always compared to the first wife. Even the servant Mrs Danvers doesn't make life much easier as she was Rebecca's closest friend. After some time though, the young lady finds out about a dark secret, connected to Maxim and whole Manderley. But will their love overcome all the troubles? Good short story, but I guess I rather prefer the original book for it is longer and therefore much more detailed.

Perfekte Verbindung vom Angenehmen mit dem Nützlichen

"Rebecca" gehörte schon als Teenager zu meinen Lieblingsbüchern. Als ich kürzlich meine Sprachkenntnisse aufpolieren wollte, fiel mir diese etwas vereinfachte englische Ausgabe samt CDs in die Hände. Toll! Der Text ist sinnvoll gekürzt und durch die CDs hat man die Sprache schnell verinnerlicht.
