4.0 Rebecca
Once upon a time, about 20 years ago, I saw the PBS production of Rebecca really, really late at night.

5.0 REBECCA Review
Though this has been on my TBR for years, I was not expecting to read it any time soon. Honestly, Rebecca never called to me. I assumed it would be a stuffy, near-insufferable romance filled with stiff, unlikable creatures. Oh, I was wrong. This classic 1938 is a titan of the gothic genre, and rig...
