Sometimes I think that my brain cannot hold together, it is filled with too much horror - too much despair ...I cannot sleep, I cannot close my eyes without seeing his damned face. If only it had been a dream.' In 'The Doll', a waterlogged notebook is washed ashore. Its pages tell a dark story of obsession and jealousy. But the fate of its narrator is a mystery. Many of the stories in this haunting collection have only recently been discovered. Most were written early in Daphne du Maurier's career, yet they display her mastery of atmosphere, tension and intrigue and reveal a cynicism far beyond her years.Hide synopsis

This book is interesting at first. One can view how DuMaurier's writing matured and the beginnings of what became her most famous novel "Rebecca". However, after reading "The Doll" an intiguing read with a disturbing ending, the balance of the short stories seem to end abruptly as though unfinished, as though the author intended to come back and write an actual ending. These are disappointing.
