Book Review: Rebecca

So, I go this book from one of the most wonderful people I know, Miss Liberty Baker. She gave it to me because of graduation and she knew I had a big trip ahead of me (New York). Anyway, I was a little hesitant because it looked like a romance novel--I'm not a huge fan of sap. I read Wicked first because I knew we were going to the show when we got there. Well, I finished Wicked on Wednesday and so yesterday I picked up Rebecca, almost reluctantly. I read the back in preparation and all the sudden it hit me: true love. This book is the book Hitchcock used to base his movie Rebecca after!! Hello?!!! My capstone class was about Hitchcock--he was basically a genius. I started reading right away. Okay, so it does have some classic romance features like the long descriptions of things that could take two sentences. But I love it. I'm so excited and I should have know Libby would have gotten me an amazing book. I'm sorry Libby for ever doubting you. I never will again. But can you blame me? I mean, look at the cover. Red satin? And Kristin, it was creepy in the airport when you called what it looked like...exactly what it looked like. You should start a psychic hotline.

I'm only on page 80 out of 380 so I have a ways to go but I'm going to guess this book is going to be awesome, if I know anything about Hitchcock. But let's be honest. I spent four months with him, basically. Except that he's dead. Other than that, though, I feel like we are close friends.
