Daphne Du Maurier Collection

Today I got off work early and went browsing into charity shops near my workplace. I walked into Thames Hospice charity shop and found this lot sitting on the top shelf.

The first thought that came to mind is that I love Rebecca and would like to read other Du Maurier titles, but not sure if I want to read all of them! Then I thought, it does look very good on my shelf (or sofa) doesn’t it?

and so.. I bought all 10 Du Maurier titles that are available with a great, great bargain. The shopkeeper said they sit on the shelf for about 10 minutes until I snapped it up.

Doesn’t it look great? Now whenever I’m ready, I’ll head up to Daphne Du Maurier Challenge and sign myself up!

What about you? Do you read any of Du Maurier’s books? If so what do you think of them?

  1. I haven’t read nearly enough du Maurier, honestly, only Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel and Frenchman’s Creek (I believe). But I’ve enjoyed all the ones I’ve read, and I love your new matching set of her books!

  4. Ooh, fantastic find, you’re so lucky! 🙂 I’ve read Rebecca of course and absolutely loved, and I’ve read some of her short stories which were great as well, very atmospheric and suspenseful.

    I want to read Jamaica Inn soon, it sound so good 🙂

  5. I’ve read The Flight of the Falcon, Echoes from the Macabre, Kiss Me Again Stranger, Don’t Look Now, and Rebecca. They were all great! I’m hoping to pick up a copy of Rule Britannia sometime soon. I can’t wait to read them all. Cool collection. You’re going to love it!

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
