Daphe Du Maurier's Rebecca - This book was hard to get into, but once the narrator gets to Manderlay, I fell in love with it. Very well written, full of intrigue, and a twist I'm glad I didn't find out before I read it. I loved the concept of the book and would recommend it to anyone not afraid to stick to a book that at first appears boring. The narrator's character may not be the easiet to love, but yeah...a book that surprised me. My first experience of actually having to read a book and not disliking it for this reason.
Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones - A lot of the girls in my lecture group adored this book and had read it many times before we studied it. For me, it wasn't as good as I thought. I enjoyed the humour and yes, it was an enjoyable read. I didn't like it as much as Rebecca though. It didn't leave me breathless.
Ian Fleming's Dr. No - Another suprise. I'm not into the whole James Bond franchise but I enjoyed this. A lot of the girls in my lecture group hated it and said it had no depth. I guess this is maybe why I enjoyed it. I could pick it up and start reading from where I left off without feeling like I was missing something, or having to go back and read over a page or two to pick the story back up. It was the sort of book I'd read on holiday - a real relaxation novel, which made it easier to understand.
Next up is Graham Green's Brighton Rock!
