    PDFEPUB Daphne du Maurier Ê The House on the Strand MOBI Ä The House PDFEPUB or Ê house epub, strand ebok, The House pdf, on the free, House on the ebok, The House on the Strand eBookQuite a few of Daphne du Maurier's novels and short stories have been made into films and this is how many people have come to discover her work The House on the Strand is one of her lesser known novels the penultimate novel by Daphne du Maurier from 1969 It is an unusual work about time travel and mind expanding drugs themes which could be thought of as apposite for the timeThe author thrusts us straight into the action with a beautifully written and vividly descriptive episode The viewpoint character Dick is in the middle of a trip to use the popular vernacular of that period After a few pages it becomes evident that Dick has been transported back to 14th Century Cornwall where the people and events are far exciting than Dick's life in the present The reader quickly perceives that this novel is going to alternate between these two contrasting scenariosA nice touch in this novel is that for most of the time it is not clear whether this is d

Nevertheless this is exactly what she has written in The House on the Strand and she does it very well indeedI loved the Cornish setting all those places I have been and seen and which Du Maurier loved so much The main character time travels or does he? back to the fourteenth century to a place where he can observe events but cannot participate in any way His biggest problem is that while he is away mentally his body is still in the present time and thi
