Book Review - The Doll and Other Stories

The Doll: The Lost Short StoriesThe Doll: The Lost Short Stories by Daphne du Maurier

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All written by the age of 23, Daphne Du Murier shows a superb deft hand at short story writing in this recently published collection.

As a huge fan of "Rebecca" as well as most of her other books, I was excited to discover these, and with the exception of one or two rather strange ones, they did not disappoint. She is quite insightful into the psychology of relationships as well as the depth of the human mind to manipulate as well as to justify its' actions.

A terrific group of stories and well recommended.
