Reviews Dreaming of Manderley
- In the interests of full disclosure, I've never read Rebecca. I think I started it once, wasn't in the mood, and put it down about halfway through the first chapter.

- This is a modern take on Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. The first half of the book feels too long and full of angst. The second half is much better and entertaining (but you have to struggle with the first half first). If the first half could be edited and shortened it would make for a much better book.
