Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca is very effective in the first person. It establishes the darkening mood and the woman's fears are so real to the reader. ( I always wish I knew her name though! But I realise her reasons for doing this, I think, as she is in R's shadow.)
Hi Jeanette - I agree. I really love the book and movie of 'Rebecca', though the book brings out more depth and a different twist. I read it many years ago and remember thinking it was so atmospheric. You can really feel for the unnamed heroine having to battle all these things she doesn't understand. Thanks for commenting.
