    This was an excellent read It is very dated, couldn t take place in the age of IT, she d be outed on Facebook in no time But as a story of its time featuring a young, female con artist, an unusual heroine If you are the sort of person who questions everything at every turn,...

    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 novel with much emphasis on sex than on crime Marnie is a thief And a very successful one Her crimes are intricately planned and daring She has devised a remarkably successful modus operandi She invents a false identity for herself, talks her way into a job and then manoeuvres herself into a position where she has access to the company s money This is easy for her because she has a natural gift for mathematics which employers quickly recognise She is also a very competent employee and even in the short time she stays in a job she usually wins promotion After that the successful completion of the robbery is just a matter of waiting for the ideal time It may take weeks, but the results are inevitable Marnie has created a whole series of these false identities and has carried out a whole series of robberies but she covers her tracks very thoroughly indeed.The fact is that Marnie is so gifted and capable th...

    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 now At mother s there are those red gladiolus Marnie totally rejects she prefers Chrysanthemums It s obvious their relationship is not good Marnie feels rejection During sleep her mother watches Marnie s nightmares accompained by feelings of being cold Marnie tells mother they didn t have a father she says we don t need men.Now she s looking for a new job she applies for an interview in a publishing house and despite not having references she gets the job as secretary She s already planning, meticulously, another robbery Her boss Mark played by Sean Co...

    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 Winston Graham is a great author with a mind that I m very sure of blew his readers away in the 60 s as his topics were controversial and blunt to the point The main character in Marnie is a full, live like character you can relate to and personally there were a lot of things she did and went through that wa...

    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 poverty and, with the help of some elocution lessons and a lot of brainpower, has transformed herself into a respectable, middle class secretary with a secret life.Then she meets Mark Rutland He s her employer in the next heist she s planning.To say , would be spoilers and not worth it The pleasure in the book is the voice of Marnie herself it s told in first person pov hers and in the ...

    Man, I was smooth I told my friend, Look, all you have to do is grab it and put it in your pocket like it s no big deal Like this We were halfway out of the store and all was quiet when my friend said, That was easy, wait here The key word, of course, is halfway out of the store Soon as we hit the mall, some big lug was on our tail and we were toast It s possible I smarted off to the guy a bit It s possible that s why he called the cops It s certain that an hour later, we were both downtown in a detention cell What are you in for this scary tough kid asks Stealing a necklace, I say Oh, man, you should be home watching Popeye I didn t ask what he was in for.This is or less how Marnie begins her life of crime, with a minor theft at the age of ten Thankfully, it s also where the parallels with my own life end When we first meet Marnie, she s passing a cop who wishes her a good night She wonders what he d say if he knew what was in her handbag Over a decade later, she s graduated to felony theft Warrants have been issued for her arrest But she doesn t mind the warrants are all under false names in towns she s long since left behind Now she s on the move again.But this time she picks the wrong target, or the wrong man to work for Mark Rut...

    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 Marnie herself is aware of them.The book was made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1964, which remains controversial to this day on a couple of different levels some think it s a masterpiece, some a failure and the film s sexual politics feel suspicious to some modern viewers who are sensitive to the stereotypes of female hysteria in old school psychiatry But neither the film nor the book traffics in much Freud who in any case was not wrong about everything The novel s psychological dimension is well researched and frankly up to the minute for 1961 And we still believe fifty years later that unacknowledged trauma can lead to all kinds of acting out in depressed people, from soldiers in a war zone to abused children, so Marnie s career of stealing has plenty of documented case histories to back it up So does her extreme sexual dysfunction sh...
