I'm happy to hear that. It's still slow going for me, but I too am trying to get used to the slower pace and enjoy the ride.I'm not so bored with Rebecca anymore. I'm starting to adjust the slower pace and the writing style. I think I just need to stop trying to rush through the pages and take my time reading it.
I did too. I was so shocked!Just finished chapter 19.
I thought it was amazing. Wonderful language without being pretentious.
Please don't take me too seriously. Let's agree to disagree. But ..... I have only read the book although I did watch the film many years ago, and it definitely concentrated on the psycho-/scary effects far more than the book does. I cannot believe that Maxim loved No-Name and certainly not "deeply". She was convenient but was not allowed to talk about the past - not even hint at it. She had to remain a little girl, keeping her hair straight and not dress up or develop in any way. She could be trusted not to rock the boat and that was all that mattered. If that is love then I really don't want to know about it. Perhaps of all three he was the biggest nut case We only really see him through No-Name's eyes and ...... well, she is a bit biased.No-Name manned up in the end. telling the staff about different foods, etx. She got spunky.
gilmargl I don't think everyone loved her, maybe in awe of her. I think Maxim felt guilty about killing her
but I think he deeply loved little no name.
I think Rebecca had Bipolar Disorder, untreated, I don't know if there was anything to treat it with back them.
Laurence Olivier was married to Vivian Leigh and she had it. He played Maxim in the film which I have coming from the library.
