Daphne Du Maurier's stories are creepy, twisty, and full of anxiety and paranoia. I loved this collection and read it quickly - I wanted to jump right into the next story whenever I finished one. The titular story, "Don't Look Now," and the story that inspired Hitchcock's film, "The Birds," were my favorites. I found myself thinking a lot about the narrative tricks Du Maurier effortlessly pulls off: seeding bits early in the story that only later flourish into doom and gloom. I'd recommend this book to fans of Shirley Jackson and Kate Chopin. I can't wait to read more of Du Maurier's work - "Rebecca" is on deck!
