    A psychological mystery in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier or Mary Stewart, Marnie is a wonderfully suspenseful and well written novel This novel became famous as an Alfred Hitchcock movie in the 1960s, it reads as if Winston Graham had Hitchcock in mind all the way.You have a sense right from the beginning that there is to this woman than meets the eye that she has a past, secrets, issues, that will explain her inability to connect to people a...

    Winston Graham s 1961 novel Marnie is best know today as the source of Alfred Hitchcock s 1964 movie of the same title The movie was somewhat controversial at the time for its relatively frank treatment of sexual problems and today if anything it divides audiences even .The novel was very successful at the time Winston Graham 1908 2003 was a best selling author most widely known for his Poldark historical novels He also wrote thrillers and Marnie fits into the latter category It s a psycho sexual crime n

    A surprisingly good read I was familiar with the story from the 1964 Hitchcock movie but did not know that it was based on a book by Winston Graham of the Poldark series As usual, the book is better than the movie Both are psychological thrillers, but Hitchcock focused on Mar...

    I didn t read the book but saw Hitchcock s adaptation of 1964 The movie was qualified as a psychological thriller.The story is arranged as to make the reader viewer wonder about the central character Marnie played by Tippi Hedren and understand her behavior Marnie a compulsive thief She started robbing 10,000 A well planned coup regarding her hair color then dark , no traces left, evasion, social security cards etc Marnie then visits her mother with an expensive gift for her yet mother doesn t like Marnie being too blond

    This book was a huge thing for me, since I knew it was the book my Grandmother read when she decided that my name should be Marnie She always told me that one day when I m old enough she would have me read it myself Sadly she passed on before I ever had the opportunity Now I would really like to ask her about it I think we would have been awsome reading buddies, as I discovered that our tast in reading material is very similar, we would have spent hours discussing plots and characters I now just wished I had the opportunity Win

    Let me start by saying that for me 3 stars isn t bad It just means the book is not amazing 4 stars is outstanding and 5 stars is almost life changing.Marnie is an enjoyable read other than two racial slurs that were a shock and were part of old expressions that are now execrable.I loved the movie and if you ve seen the movie, you know how most of the book goes other than the ending which is somewhat different.Marnie is a compulsive thief She plans her thefts carefully, though there s nothing impulsive about them She comes from povert

    An excellent suspense novel published in 1961 by the much loved author of the Poldark series, told as a first person account by a beautiful, clever thief named Marnie Elmer who is trapped into marriage by one of her victims, Mark Rutland It s clear that Mark s motives are purely from the heart he fell in love with Marnie before she stole from him and now he wants to help her go straight But the psychological damage she suffered as a child, which has led her to a life of crime, among other things, is so far reaching and buried so deeply, not even
