    WOW I liked MY COUSIN RACHEL even better than REBECCA

    This dark old fashioned style mystery gives the reader plenty of clues to contemplate, some suspicious evil characters to dissect and others who s na vety and impulsive acts will make you want to scream with frustration..or it did me.

    As for the ending.I loved it, but you ll have to decide for yourself if Rachel is innocent or guilt...

    My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier is a 1952 publication This version is the 2013 Little, Brown and Company publication A scathingly wicked masterpiece This book has a very heavy atmospheric quality that drew me in right from the start In fact, I was so transfixed, I put aside everything else and gave myself over to its allure Phillip Ashley was raised by his cousin, Ambrose, a confirmed bachelor They are content with their arrangement, and with Phillip s role as heir to Ambrose s legacy However, Phillip s complacency is upended quite unexpectedly when Ambrose travels to Florence, meets our cousin, Rachel , a woman with a connection to their family, and immediately falls under her spell In a shockingly brief period of time, Ambrose goes from wedded bliss to death, leaving Phillip furious with Rachel, suspecting her of contributing to his cousin s demise in some way, shape, or form But, when Rachel shows up at his doorstep with Ambrose s belongings, Phillip too finds himself enchanted by Rachel and soon forgets all about his earlier jealousies and suspicions Until I have several books in my collection written by this author, but the only one I ve read is, Rebecca ,When this book began to recirculate due to a motion picture and a great library reads promo, my interest was highly piqued Finally, I managed to work it into my schedule, but I wish I had dis...

    I loved this story It reminded me so much of Rebecca, both have that gothic atmosphere, the bit of romance, the slow moving story that builds such tension, and the dimwitted main character I thought briefly this might even surpass Rebecca as my favorite, but how can you top Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again Though not too shabby here with They used to hang men at Four Tunings in the old days.My Cousin Rachel tells the story of obsession Philip is a young gent, who is grieving over the loss of his cousin, who also raised him, Ambrose Ambrose was recently married to his cousin Rachel and became quite ill and died Now Rachel goes to Cornwall to return the belonging of Ambrose to Philip, and the two finally meet Oh there is jealousy, deceit, and such an obsession in this wonderful tale I don t want to tell any as to give anyth...

    This was a buddy read with James Jay , author of Watching Glass Shatter, and I m so happy we read this I d rate it 4.5 just to distinguish it from Rebecca, which gets the full five.The book actually began a little slowly for me, and it felt almost discombobulated, as if DuMaurier were shuffling toward the storyline But then Rachel appears and everything clicks masterfully into gear DuMaurier expertly conjures a brooding, ambiguous atmosphere, and from the very beginning we wonder about this bewitching woman who seizes our narrator, young Philip, in the grip of her Italianate charm The fact that she may have been responsible for Philip s guardian s death is something he dismisses with the enthusiasm of the young, until.Plot summaries abound, and I won t add to them here The language of the book is utterly beguiling, those languid fluid sentences sweep us through the plot and make us take notice of all sorts of subtleties the cut of a dress, the gleam of an eye, the inflection of a voice, and of course the natural world in all its infinite variety The wind of the day before had blown itself up country, taking the rain with it, and at noon the sun...

    My Cousin Rachel was published in 1951, and is a gripping story of suspense It very much recalls the feel and style of her earlier mystery novel Rebecca of 1938.The novel s narrator is Philip Ashley, a young man who had been orphaned at the early age of seven He was raised by his bachelor uncle Ambrose, the owner of a large country estate on the Cornish coast In the first chapter, we learn Philip s life story up to the age of 24 Ambrose had been a very unconventional guardian, teaching Philip his alphabet by using the initials of swear words, for instance, but Philip clearly idolised him As Philip grew up, they ran the estate together in an all male household, where Ambrose taught Philip to have nothing to do with women that they were a race apart Although Philip feels himself to be mature, the reader infers from the start that for much of the narrator s life he has been overprotected, and his experience very restricted The only women in his life have been slight acquaintances, whom he usually found laughable He does have one female friend, Louise Kendall, the daughter...

    I have been struggling with this review a bit and I think I know why If you have Rebecca as a point of reference before you read this one, I think you may struggle to review this one, too If I did not have Rebecca, I would probably go with 4 to 4.5 stars for sure With Rebecca, it is still great, but 3.5 to 4 instead I am rounding up to 4 because it is still a very good book, just not Rebecca good While intense and mysterious, I found that the intensity and mystery plateaued early on in the book and kind of stayed there throughout Even getting into the final scenes in the book, everything just unfolded at the same level Now, this is just how it was for me Others may find the resolution intriguing and high intensity than I did.Another thing about the plot and the mystery for me was that I don t really feel it developed all that much After the first third of the book I got the idea of what we as readers should be wondering about and that never really changed or grew du Maurier just kept piling on details about what was already going on and what had happened, and I was over here waiting for intricate and mind...

    Why This Book After reading Rebecca several years ago, I placed My Cousin Rachel, another of Daphne du Maurier s famed novels, on my To Be Read TBR shelf Earlier this year, a Goodreads buddy, Michael, and I were chatting about various books when we decided to do a buddy read together, selecting this wonderful Gothic edition We were both interested to see if it lived up to the hype and how it compared to the author s other words We agreed on early March and got to it this week I ve only started doing buddy reads in the last few months, but they are quite fun I recommend them Approach Style I purchased the Kindle Reader version from to read on my iPad It contains 350 pages and took me four days to read The novel is written in first person point of view and told from the perspective of Philip Ashley, a 24 year old English man set in a somewhat unknown time, but likely the early mid twentieth century given some of the details in the background setting The language is intense and full of amazing imagery and astounding descriptions Plot, Characters Setting The novel centers around the Ashley family Philip s parents die when he is less than a year old, but his cousin Ambrose raises him in their England home At some point years later, Ambrose unexpectedly marries a widow named Rachel who is half ...
