My Cousin Rachel
My Cousin Rachel | Daphne Du Maurier
Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his benevolent older cousin, Ambrose. Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in Philip as his heir, a man who will love his grand home as much as he does himself. But the cosy world the two construct is shattered when Ambrose sets off on a trip to Florence. There he falls in love and marries - and there he dies suddenly. Jealous of his marriage, racked by suspicion at the hints in Ambrose's letters, and grief-stricken by his death, Philip prepares to meet his cousin's widow with hatred in his heart. Despite himself, Philip is drawn to this beautiful, sophisticated, mysterious Rachel like a moth to the flame. And yet . . . might she have had a hand in Ambrose's death?

While I enjoyed this book, it definitely did not have the charm or the atmosphere that I adored in Rebecca.

Just like Rebecca, I definitely enjoyed the second half alot more than the first but I feel like this one fell a bit short. While it is very interesting and intriguing at times, I felt the ending fell a bit flat.

I will admit that Daphne du Maurier definitely has a way with words and I can appreciate her writing even.

An unreliable narrator, along with other unreliable characters adds to the suspense in this gothic novel.

This is my #1951 entry for the #192025 challenge, my 3rd book finished for the #AwesomeAugust readathon, and my #BookSpin selection for the month.

I‘ve only ever read Rebecca. Just recently I watched some documentaries about Daphne and her life and that got me interested in her writing. This book I can see reflected in her life and I‘ve really enjoyed it. About to watch the movie. I‘ve got another of her books to read and some short stories. A very interesting lady. Perhaps born in the wrong time.

Looks like I'm going against popular opinion, but I didn't rate this one. I absolutely love Rebecca & Jamaica Inn, but this one is spoiled for me by Philip Ashley. It's no wonder his birthday fell on 1st April as the man is the biggest fool ever. I've heard of the adage 'Love is blind' but he takes the cake & the whole bakery too. 2⭐

Now THIS is a novel! I love that it keeps me guessing the whole time (even now that I've finished it), that du Maurier doesn't assume her reader isn't paying attention and so doesn't repeat details over and over, and the reserved yet deeply tense interactions between the characters.

First pass at a library purge. We're in need of a deep, whole-house declutter, and I know the books are going to take several passes (but will probably be easier than the craft supplies).

My guiding questions:

1) Will I read this book again?
2) Do I want to give this book as a gift to someone else?
3) Does this book hold an emotional significance to me or my family members?

Oh. My. Word.

I'm now going to read du Maurier's entire back catalog. I can't believe it took me so long to discover her.

What an ending! And it still didn't answer everything, & I'm perfectly okay with that. That seems to be a theme for her.

I still rank Rebecca as the best of the three I've read. But this was fantastic.

I almost bailed on this book. It is a slow burn, but it is worth it. The final chapters are increasingly claustrophobic and the book becomes impossible to put down. All-in-all a twisty, gothic, psychological thriller. Cannot shake the ending!

Loved it..... Slow paced and unsettling, but in the best of ways! A creeping uneasiness is evident as cousin Rachel comes into young Philip‘s life after his guardian dies. The atmosphere Du Maurier creates with her simple yet beautiful prose is so absorbing. And love the ambiguousness, that somehow leaves you in no doubt..... Jonathan Pryce‘s narration is top notch too....

I read Rebecca for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. I was very excited to explore more by this author this month.

As with Rebecca, I loved this book as well! 💚 It's such an atmospheric gothic tale that seemingly appears as if nothing much is happening when really there's so much going on behind the scenes so to speak. Excellent work of literature.

This was my first Daphne du Maurier, but it won‘t be the last. The tale surrounding Phillip, Ambrose, and Rachel was mysterious, dark, and twisty. Poor Phillip is so naive - I just want to hit him with the book for being so dense.

Honestly, I don‘t know how Daphne Du Maurier could have written this any better. 1951, a female writing about a complicated early 19th century woman from the perspective of a sheltered man raised in a male household. There‘s just so much there, there. ...I like to read HF, but I think it‘s important to also read authors from the past.

marleed @readordierachel Oh thank you! My local library has a bookstore and keeps a shelf stacked for old classics. I love to find a treasure for 2 bucks and give it a good home. This one has a little cigarette burn right above the ‘h‘ in Rachel that burned onto the actual cover. For a 1951 book, that somehow cracked me up thinking of many a book that likely sat under 50‘s ashtrays! 2y

It certainly had psychological intrigue and a little mystery, but the ending twist wasn‘t enough of a shocker for the rest of the fairly slow novel to be worth it. I read this because I loved her Rebecca novel, but this didn‘t compare for me.

My first Litsy post (hi!) and first read of the 2020 Reading Rush. I found My Cousin Rachel moody and delicious. Having seen both major film adaptations, I knew what was in store. Even still, du Maurier expertly manipulated my emotions from start to finish. I went through the cycle of enchantment, trust, betrayal, distrust, and back again along with Philip, our youthful, naïve, and emotionally unstable main character. What a ride!

It wasn‘t as good as Rebecca, taking longer to grab my attention and being more predictable in some ways, and with a convenient plot point at the end (under spoiler tag). Louise is about the only character who can be truly trusted, but all of them are intriguing. #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

Lcsmcat How could Philip know that Rachel would try to cross the unfinished bridge? Or are we supposed to believe that this was an accident? Too convenient. 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I loved this one as much as Rebecca - the last line was awesome 2y
TheAromaofBooks Great review - as for the ending... I think in many ways it's purposefully left ambiguous. Was Rachel good or evil? Is Philip a murderer, or did he mete out justice? I didn't love this one as much as Rebecca either, but it was still pretty atmospheric! 2y
