Rebecca is widely regarded as Daphne du Maurier's finest novel. It tells the story of Manderley, an exquisite house with gardens down to the sea; its owner Max de Winter; and his new young wife. And, of course, Rebecca.More
"If Daphne du Maurier had written only Rebecca, she would still be one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Few writers have created more magical and mysterious places than Jamaica Inn and Manderley, buildings invested with a rich character that gives them a memorable life of their own." (Richard Kelly, Professor of English, University of Tennessee)

When I purchased this I didn't realise it was a shortened version. Had I realised I wouldn't have bought it. It was very heavily edited. You might as well watch the Hitchcock version of the film.
I like Emilia Fox's narration of Mrs De Winter, but that's all. I wouldn't recommend it unless you can't be bothered with the full story.
I saw her in play the character in the TV version and I think she was well cast. She comes across well as Mrs De Winter in this version and also doesn't overplay the other characters.
I wouldn't cut anything from this version. It's already too heavily cut.
