5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes of Rebecca but stands alone, 3 Jan. 2011
This review is from: My Cousin Rachel (VMC) (Paperback)
I was anxious as I came to this book after Rebecca and Jamacia Inn. I was afraid that those are the two I had heard the most about that it meant that the rest of Du Maurier's work was not as good. However, I have found that since to be not at all the case. I cannot help comparing Du Maurier with the man who considered her writing one of his greatest inspirations - Alfred Hitchcock and in reading this book you can very much sense why he delighted in her as a writer. The suspense builds and builds, there are twists and turns and you are never completely sure what way the story will lead. You feel the ambiguity of emotions that the narrator has in regards to his Cousin and you are left wondering as is he, how it will all turn out. I would very much recommend that fans of Rebecca and Jamacia Inn do not give up there. Du Maurier wrote in a way in which each of her books hold their own and will engage you, what scholars consider a mediocre Du Maurier still would hold its own against many five star modern classics of today.
