  • In the shadow of Rebecca Feb 19, 2008
    by bookishwench

    I have been searching for a book by Daphne Du Maurier that equals the greatness of her "Rebecca." I thought a tale of time-travel would certainly pass the test, but "The House on the Strand" was ultimately unsatisfying.

    Although it could be profitable as a cautionary tale against recreational drugs, watching the protagonist destroy his marriage while yearning for the dull doings of a 13th-century soap opera is less than enthralling. And the pro-adultery sentiments expressed leave the reader with a bad taste in his figurative mouth.

    The ambiguous ending might be considered chic by some, but I'll take a more straightforward approach any day.
