The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier, Sally Beauman I hoped that I would like this book more, as it's a much-loved classic and favourite of many. Unfortunately, though the characters are creepily fascinating (especially Mrs. Danvers), and the writing wonderfully atmospheric, I only got really interested in the plot at approximately the 3/4 point once Maxim confessed to having killed Rebecca. After that point, there was twist after twist after reveal after reveal and multiple character revelations that made the book un-put-down-able until the end.
