Cornish Reading Challenge: Terri Nixon reviews Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier

Author Terri Nixon reviews Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier for the Cornish Reading Challenge!

I first read this book as a mid-teen, but although I’ve always known I’d enjoyed it, my memory did not do justice to the beauty of this book, and I realised that when I came to re-read it again recently. 381 more words

Review: Jamaica Inn

Jamaica Inn is the most guilty-pleasure-y of the Daphne du Maurier books I’ve read. The romantic and melodramatic elements are over the top; it’s salacious, it’s predictable, and yet it’s so entertaining. 879 more words


Book Review: Daphne du Maurier, Jamaica Inn

While a dark enough movie, we are talking Hitchcock after all, the book is much, much darker. Perhaps it’s why most books are better than their movie counterparts, even when those movies are very well done: a good author can just get into a character’s head so much more, and in a different way. 50 more words
