It was

Finished it last night and liked it-it didn't feel as dated as I thought it would be, with it being over 50 years and dealing with social issues. I gave it a 4/5 rating.

This week I finally read Dr. Johnson's book, as well as the Fast 5 ebook by Bert Herring, SOS Diet (Stop Only Sugar) by James Surrell and Diets in a Nutshell by Mary Josephine Scales. For fiction I read Opal by Jennifer Armentrout (YA PNR) and right now I'm about halfway through Dead Sky Morning by Karina Halle. If you like X-Files type of stuff this is a fun series. It's about amateur ghost hunters who are starting a web show, and they get themselves in crazy situations. Lot's of sarcastic humor, romantic tension and weird stuff going on

Speaking of classics, I read Rebecca by du Maurier for the first time last year, lol. If you haven't ever read it, it's great. Of course, then I watched Hitchcock's version on t.v.

Also re-read Jane Eyre and fell in love with it again. I'm off to read Steinbeck now, and thank you for reminding me...so glad I work in a library!

Oh my gosh, Rebecca is one of my all time favorite books, and the movie is good too. Thanks for reminding me. I may need to dig my copy out and re-read it.

I've been having an urge to dig out a bunch of my old favorites lately. Like the James Herriott books - All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, etc. Those were great and made me truly laugh and cry. Jane Austen is always a favorite too. Hmmm, I'm developing quite a list/stack!

At a get-together my friends and I were discussing books we've read over and over and Rebecca was one of them. Surprisingly for 5 of us, our to-be-read-again-and-again books were all Daphne DuMaurier books.

I like to reread "My Cousin Rachel" immediately, just to read it through with a firm guilty or innocent mindset.

Funny, I was thinking about my Cousin Rachel earlier today when I looked in here. She wrote such amazing strong storeies. The Birds, Don't Look Now, Frenchman's Creek.

Have you any of you read Rebecca's Tale? Sorry, can't think of the author just now but it was published with the go ahead from her estate. A good, though not great, read.

Just checked, it is by Sally Beauman.

I read Rebecca's Tale some years ago. It was an okay story, but I was disappointed and didn't think it stood up to DDM's writing.

Not sure if this has already been recommended in this thread but loved it! "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn (and everything else she's written). Also remembered that I recently read, "The Night Strangers" by Chris Bohjalian. Both of these are suspense/thrillers: My FAVE!!!

I just finished listening to "The Map of Time" and "The Map of the Sky" by Felix J. Palma. Had a lot of fun with "Time" the first book. Three stories that intertwine, all centering on H. G. Wells and his book, "The Time Machine". "Sky" concerns his book "War of the Worlds" and alien invasion. The omniscient narrator is a hoot to listen to.

I've read The Map of Time and really liked it. I need to read the other one!

Just finished Dead Sky Morning by Karina Halle. Love this series and I've already bought the ebook of the next one

Oh my goodness-just saw the movie trailer on Youtube for Warm Bodies, which is based on one of my all time favorite zombie books, Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I am so dragging my husband to the theater to watch this

I recommended that awhile back, but now I am going to try your recommendation for The Night Strangers. I love suspense/thrillers. I just finished Gillian Flynn's first book, Sharp Objects. It was a good read and disturbing on so many levels.

I did this as an audio book some time back. Yes, a wonderful book. Also disturbing and definitely unforgettable.

I did, too. I believe that it has also been made into a French film, and I'm looking forward to seeing that. (I'm a movie addict, too; maybe we should start a film club thread, also. Anyone besides me interested in that?)

I'm in the mood for a twisted thriller. I found two in Library Journal earlier that I'm dying to read, but they are not published yet. Hate to waste money on yet another ebook that is not that good. Recommendations?

Can you give us an example of a twisted thriller?? Like, a thriller with a crazy person in it? LOL

I'm not sure that it's twisted enough for you, but have you read any of Denise Mina's mysteries? I suggest starting with "Field of Blood"; I really like Patty, her heroine, who is a struggling Scottish reporter investigating a crime in which two 10-year old boys are accused of killing a toddler.

Have you read Patricia Highsmith's work? They are excellent psychological mysteries.

I guess I'm thinking of something that has a surprise ending and lots of suspense. I don't really go for detective-type novels and tend to shy away from series, although I won't say that I couldn't find a series or detective novel I would like. I'm in the mood for something fast-paced, suspenseful with a twisted ending right now though...does that make it more clear?
