by Daphne du Maurier



“Rebecca”, a unique novel by Daphne du Maurier, an English author and playwright of the 20th century, is a love drama with gothic elements. This is a shrilling story of two worn-out souls, which are looking for, and finally find each other in the surrounding darkness. Scary and clear, simple and elite. Usual attributes of real life combined with strange, weird events keep readers in suspect till the very last page.
