Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca, Penguin Readers, B2, 2300 headwords

Sergio G. Sánchez, 2º Bachillerato EFL

The story is about an 18 year old young woman, who meets a man of 43, Maxim de Winter. He is in love with her and they get married. A marriage which is overshadowed by the memory of Maxim’s first wife. Rebecca was her name, she died in a mysterious accident on a boat. His new wife starts looking for information about Rebecca and becomes intimidated and jealous. Maxim becomes suspicious and reveals his role in the death of his wife. He tries to escape from prison. Then a fight starts in court. The story ending is really surprising, you have to read the novel.

This novel is really good for romantic suspense novel lovers. Really mysterious and with an original ending. You start reading and it is really difficult to stop. I am not really fan of novels, but that one is really good. Some difficult words so I had to reading with the dictionary at hand, but it was worth it. If you want to spend some hours reading without getting bored this is your story.
This book has been recommended before. See April posts
