You already know I have decided to read Jamaica Inn because I loved Rebecca so much! Well, about Jamaica Inn I have mixed feelings. It took me a few weeks to read the first half because it was just not entertaining enough, was...dull! I was about to quit reading but I guess I didn't do it out of respect for Rebecca! And it's good I didn't! Because it got better, I have read the second half in 2-3 days! It turned into the kind of book that I like, the one that you can't put down and which finds it's way on the table during dinner because I just have to finish it and that's one of the few quiet moments I have.
So, I have to agree to Melanie, it can not be compared to Rebecca and I guess I raised my expectations too high! It was ok, but I did not loved it as I loved Rebecca!
Jamaica Inn is a dark thriller, a gothic tale, where, when the darkness falls, evil things happens. It also has a hint of romance and I had fun trying to figure out what happens to the Inn. "After the death of her mother, Mary Yellan crosses the windswept Cornish moors to Jamaica Inn, the home of her Aunt Patience. There she finds Patience a changed woman, downtrodden by her domineering, vicious husband Joss Merlyn. The inn is a front for a lawless gang of criminals, and Mary is unwillingly dragged into their dangerous world of smuggling and murder. Before long she will be forced to cross her own moral line to save herself."
Most of the books I read I wish they could be turn into movies (or if they are, I look forward to see the movie), this is not the case with Jamaica Inn which again shows it did enjoyed it that much. It was ok.
Next onto Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern which I hope it's better than Jamaica Inn. I did read a few pages already and seams interesting. I look forward to more but first I need to finish this cardigan. #theresonlysomuchtime
“Dead men tell no tales, Mary.” “No, Mary had no illusions about romance. Falling in love was a pretty name for it, that was all.” #gratitudeattitide #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #jamaicainn
