Everyone should listen to this book!

This is a startlingly good book. Jonathan Price reads in calm, hypnotic style which complements the burgeoning bewilderment the story weaves around the listener. It is a consummate description of the way men cannot understand women and vice versa.
Philip is so likeable and so real that you almost want to shout out encouragement or warning to him, depending on your take of cousin Rachel! Rachel is the cleverest of characters, an ethereal, not quite there person, you struggle to understand other than by the ways those around her react. That this depiction of a man's man so utterly in love with a woman, was crafted BY a woman is a credit to Du Maurier. As a story in its own right, it is perfect, and stays with you long after you finish it. If you loved Rebecca -you will be amazed at how different this is and yet how accomplished. If you havent read/listened to any Daphne yet...I urge you to start here. Bliss.

Intriguing, atmospheric mystery

What other book might you compare My Cousin Rachel to, and why?

A similar writing style to Patrick McGrath and a similar atmosphere to "Gillespie and I" by Jane Harris. As the story slowly unravels, we are unsure whether the narrator is reliable or not.


What does Jonathan Pryce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narration was so perfect, I hardly noticed it. Every inflection and accent was pitch perfect. It helped create a wonderful atmosphere.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

An intriguing thriller mystery that keeps you guessing till the end.
