@oursharedshelf de septembre/octobre : le grand classique de Daphné du Maurier, Rebecca.

L'histoire en deux mots ? Une jeune femme désargentée rencontre et épouse Maximilien De Winter. Après leur lune de miel, ils s'installent dans le magnifique domaine familial des De Winter, Manderley, mais une ombre rode, celle de Rebecca, la première femme de Max, tragiquement noyée.
Voilà un roman à (re)découvrir, lové sur un canapé, entouré d'un plaid, devant un feu de cheminée. Bon, ça le fait aussi avec 30 degrés dehors.
C'est un récit à l'atmosphère sombre où la nouvelle Mme De Winter nous raconte ses débuts de femme mariée et surtout ses difficultés. Voilà une narratrice, confondante de naïveté, de timidité et de maladresse qui fait face au souvenir flamboyant et glorieux laissé par sa rivale décédée.
Comment lutter avec une femme parfaite, morte certes, mais qui du coup restera figée à jamais dans cette perfection ?

L'opposition entre les deux personnages féminins principaux est très bien menée, Rebecca, est très présente, c'est même le personnage central, elle donne son nom au livre et elle revient sans cesse tout au long du roman alors que nous ignorons le prénom de la narratrice.

Sans être un roman "effrayant", l'auteure distille des moments oppressants avec Mme Danvers, la gouvernante en chef et fanatique de Rebecca, notamment.
Au final il s'agit d'un roman que j'ai beaucoup apprécié, avec son ambiance sombre, un peu à l'instar des Hauts de Hurlevent, avec ses personnages à la psychologie travaillée, son rythme, certes lent mais prenant, bref je vous le conseille. .

I finished this book ages ago but never posted anything about it and feel the need to because it lit a fire in me. I never knew anything about the radium girls before now but what an incredible group of women they were to stand up for themselves and their sisters in the face of death from their ‘harmless’ occupation. I love reading the stories of fearless women like this group who continually inspire me 💪

It's been a while since I last posted, @bookbuddyreads is taking up all my spare time! It's been really fun though and it's great that the books are finding people to read and connect over.

I have managed to read a couple of books in that time (but no way near as many as I normally would) including this one, Persopolis by Marjane Satrapi.
I'd seen the film years ago at Bristol's watershed cinema and I remember coming away feeling overpowered by it; it brings such lightness and humour to what is a very complex, challenging and overwhelmingly sad period of Iran's history.

The love she has for her parents and country really shines through and I also learnt so much about Iranian culture and found the picture I've included here (swipe right) really insightful.

I haven't read a graphic novel before but it's definitely something I'm looking to do again as it's wonderful- her drawings really come to life and transport you to the time in a way that words cannot.

Have you read this? What graphic novels would you recommend?

Thanks to the book fairies for this copy!

Decided it was a good time to join in, and to read @oursharedshelf’s book selection for September/October. I must admit I’ve never #read anything by #DaphneDuMaurier, but #Rebecca seems like the perfect one for me to start with. A #book that ties in well with the onset of #autumnal days, and gloomy skies. Oh, and yes, I am eating cake for #breakfast! #oursharedshelf #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booklovers #books #oatlatte #vegancake #coffee #bostonteaparty #btpcafes

New Books!! 🤓 I am not entirely sure why I decided to put a cactus on top, I think it’s because my cactus matches Dating You Hating You. It doesn’t really matter, this photo is beautiful because of the beautiful books 😊📖🤓

Arranco el mes con lecturas simultáneas, “El odio que das” de Angie Thomas, que me tiene bastante intrigada y otra totalmente distinta que sucederá en paralelo “la evaluación en la Danza” de Alícia Muñoz.
Confieso que la única forma en la que puedo leer dos libros al tiempo es ésta: Cuando no tienen nada que ver. Me encanta leer literatura, pero como mi vida esta atravesada por la Danza de forma irremediable, trato de intercalar lecturas sobre pedagogía o biografías de bailarines que enriquecen mi trabajo y mi pasión.

This really did make me burst out laughing. I am not in DC, where I know @gemmalhartley’s book #FedUp has arrived. Can’t wait to read it and talk to her!

A Durban Bookfairy has been inspired by Emma Watson’s empowering book club #oursharedshelf to pick up this Sept/Oct chosen read, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier 💚

An excerpt from the book:

If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.

About the book:

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . .
Our protagonist, after leading a hard and sad life is swept off her feet by a handsome widower, she leaves her job as a lady’s maid and begins her fairytale life only to realize that the late wife has an overpowering effect that threatens to destroy her marriage... #ibelieveinbookfairies #oursharedshelf #shareyourfirstpage #bookfairies #firstpage #bookclub #feministbookclub #emmawatson #amreading #currentread

*for bok interesserte*📖
The read of the month on #oursharedshelf is "Rebecca" by Daphne de Maurier, a gothic novel. Now, I must say am glad I had feminism as a backdrop reading this story - it was a strange reading experience. The storyline and surroundings is heavy influenced by "Jane Eyre", but told through a much weaker narrator. Come to think of it the narrators ability to tell a good story pretty much sums up what I like about her. Dont get me wrong, the book is very well written - but this is in stark contrast to the lead characters who has very little personal development through the storyline and a slightly predictable plot. If I read it without the feminist point of view, I wouldnt be much impressed to tell the truth. Having gender roles and identities in mind though, it makes a much better read. The way the author has left the narrator nameless, known only by her husbands name, submissive from first to last page - makes me think she doesnt want us to think of her as the heroine. Rebecca on the otherhand, the nemesis in the book, owns her name even in death. She is described as intelligente and independent - and the more I think of it it seem like its this part of her personality who are disliked by the narrator and husband, and supposed to put her in a bad light. Now maybe I am reading this out of my own time and view, but the strange protagonists contrasting a very well written story- makes me think Daphne wanted to invent a strong female character who was very different from the women of her time, and only in our time are we able/open enough to understand this about her book. To me Rebecca are the true heroine of the story. And also who prevail in the end. Daphne herself is known to have led a very different and independent life - much more like Rebecca than of the narrator. It is interesting that the character of Rebecca is overall still described as a psycho (see Wikipedia), maintaing her "bad girl" rep. Which I dont think was Daphnes intention for the character at all, or the book. Reading this book as feminist makes it quite genious🍁

🇮🇹A volte ancora non riesco a crederci che il mio libro esiste, stampato come si deve, in carta e inchiostro. Anche se auto pubblicato non significa che non sia valido. Devo solo trovare qualcuno che ci creda tanto quanto ci credo io! 🇬🇧 Sometimes it's still hard to believe my book is real, properly printed, paper and ink. Self published doesn't mean not worth it. I just need to find somebody that believes in my book as much as I do... #neness #writing #reading #leggere #scrivere #instabook #love #amore #time #london #londra #autopubblicato #autoriemergenti #selfpublished #instabook #bookstagram #amazonbook #librichepassione #libridaleggere #lettura #book #ilmiolibro #booklover #bookaddict #mysharedshelf #oursharedshelf #kindlebook #libridaleggere #lettureconsigliate #romance #verona

Many years ago, I watched the film Rebecca directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The movie really impressed me and a little later I found out that it was based on Daphne Du Maurier book, so I decided "I'd definitely read it!". But, as it often the case..."so many books, so little time"📚From year to year Rebecca was one of a bunch of books on my to-read list. And when I have seen that this book has been chosen by #emmawatson 's bookclub @oursharedshelf as book of the month for September/October 2018, my first thought was that this time it's a sign, I must read it! So finally #currentlyreading #Rebecca #daphnedumaurier
