Daphne du Maurier – Don’t Look Now – Thoughts

“Don’t Look Now” is a collection of short tales by Daphne du Maurier.
Having read “Rebecca” already, I was curious to discover this collection.
I enjoyed reading these stories that vary in theme and atmosphere, and which are all based on human desire, a desire to know more, to know what seems impossible, or to believe in something that seems impossible; stories that stress human insecurities, failures.
The first tale, “Don’t Look Now”, is certainly the most gripping and captivating; the last story, titled “The Breakthrough”, is probably the most introspective, with human beings striving to understand and prove something that’s beyond our grasp.
I also liked “The Way of the Cross”, with a cunning depiction of human fragilities and peculiarities.
