review 1: well done. I am grateful that I did not have to dissect this book in jr high or high school or college. a fun story with evil and treachery wrapped in a cozy blanket of familiar security. I read this book in lieu of the one I was looking for from someone's "classics" list by the ...

review 1: Having read du Maurier's Rebecca and watched the Laurence Oliver version, I did not hesitate much when I came across Flight of the Falcon. This author was once the queen supreme when it came to suspense. The plot still holds up after all these years and I found myself reading by ...

review 1: This medium-length book fictionalizes the saga of the Irish Puxley family and their connection to the copper and tin mining industry of Southern Ireland. DuMaurier christens them the Brodricks and locks them in their ancient feud with the Donovans of Doonhaven, over the land and...

review 1: Another timeless mystery in the most excellent du Maurier style of "Rebecca". Philip's beloved uncle Ambrose leaves Cornwall for Florence & dies there. When he arrives, cousin Rachel, the wife of Ambrose, has disappeared & mystery surrounds it all. She later comes to Cornwall,...

review 1: I'm thinking of writing another time slip novel and debating how to do the time travelling (the first novel had parallel stories)and a friend suggested this book. It's the only du Maurier novel I haven't read and it surprised me by being quite different. I don't think the idea of...

review 1: This is my first du Maurier novel. I have seen the various adaptations of Rebecca but never read the novel. So glad I started out with My Cousin Rachel. It is brilliantly written from a damaged young man's point of view. As I kept reading the novel, I see how growing up in a priv...
Gli uccelli e altri racconti (1952)

English

review 1: The story behind the movie The Birds caught my eye--who hasn't been frightened by that movie? The book was full of slightly creepy short stories, not blatantly frightening in a Stephen King sort of way but understated and atmospheric.The basic plot of The Birds was the same as t...

review 1: This was such a surprise, not least because I thought I had heard of all du Maurier's books, and read most of them. But this, her last, was new to me...Written in the early seventies and set in a fictional late seventies, it tells the story of a few days in the life of one eccent...
Mad (1972)

review 1: Utterly wonderful venomously anti-American final novel from one of Britain's greatest writers. An alliance with the US results in the unwelcome imposition of an American military base in Cornwall. Local elderly eccentric rouses the nation to send the whole bunch of fascists packi...

language
English

review 1: I love Daphne and whilst this book isn't up to her usual excellent standards it is still a good read and kept me interested right until the end. The thing about Mary Anne that is compelling is that she was actually one of Daphne's family members (aunt, great aunt, can't quite re...
Myself When Young (1977)
language
English
3.83 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A fascinating look into a fascinating life and mind. Perfect for anybody who adores Daphne Du Maurier's writing. It is an honest, genuine account of her early life. We see Du Maurier as a human being, just like us, yet still every bit as likable as one of her heroes or heroines. ...
