You're going to need lots of coffee to keep you awake for this one!

I struggled with this story. There was nothing thrilling about this to keep me really interested, but I persevered because my partner is a huge Daphne du Maurier fan and I am anxious to see what all the fuss is about.
The pace was very slow and the characters egocentric and dull - I really hated the main character. Obviously the language was very much set in it's time, but it did not have the quaint lyrical beauty of a Bronte or an Austin. Too many repeated phrases and the "he said, she saids'l drive me mad.
I shall give another one a try! ;)
