Reader's Diary #2050 - Daphne du Maurier: The Birds

 Not sure how I've never read anything by Daphne du Maurier before. Could have sworn I had until yesterday and couldn't find any record. Anyway, I quite enjoyed my first foray and will probably seek out more by her.

"The Birds" was the inspiration for Hitchcock's film of the same name, though except for the premise (birds have gone crazy and are attacking humans) and a seaside setting, there's very little else in common. Still I found it a delightful tale of unexplained horror. It could also serve as a warning for those not taking warnings seriously; a theme as relevant now as it was then.
