Don't Stop Readin'

Hi guys, I'm Anushka (or Annie, if you like). I'm a serial reader and a more-than-occasional reviewer and I like to mention authors by their names in my reviews. (Ha! Suck it GoodReads!)

Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier Also find this review here - Don't Stop Readin'

"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again."

This is undoubtedly the most haunting opening line of any book ever.
The only mistake I committed was reading Mary Higgins Clark’s A Cry in The Night before Rebecca . They both were eerily similar to each other in the beginning, that was a good book too but this one was miles better.

But good thing their resemblance faded after first 130 pages or so, this book took a more sharper and sinister turn later. Every single thing led to build up an ominous feeling inside you, as if a shadow is following you. I can say I simply loved this book, it was just perfection to me. The writing was disturbingly beautiful and buffed to supremacy.
I recommend this to all mystery/horror fans out there. Rebecca is the epitome of precision, doesn't get any better than this.
Must-read, this one.
