5.0 out of 5 stars
A good read for Du Maurier fans, 24 April 2006
Although titled the 'Rebecca Notebook,' there is not a great deal of content on the makings of the novel (47 pages out of 180).
Having said that, the explanation of how "Rebecca' came to be is interesting; however I found the 'other memories' section far more gripping. With biographies on her farther, grandfather and other family members plus memories from her childhood you really begin to get a feel of what Daphne Du Maurier was like as a person. The book is sort of a 'behind the scenes' look at how her family and incidents as a child helped to shape her in to the great writer she became.
A must read for any Du Maurier fan!
