Far from her best Glad this wasn t her first that I read or I wouldn t read any A slog Ironically in 3 weeks from now a British Brexit referendum will decide whether Britain stays or leaves the EU ironic because this novel from the early 70 s is premised upon the conseuences of a fantasy British decision back then to leave The conseuence was a sort of anschluss US takeover of the UK falsely promoted as voluntary sort of like Germany s takeover of Austria back in the 30 s That part is fantastical Although not completely in that the US has been deeply involved in foreign incursions both overt and covert since at least Teddy Roosevelt s day if not earlier Always for the good of the locals ahem This novel shows the US face to be very unpleasant and analogizes the occupation of her part of Britain Cornwall to the WWII occupation of France by Germany Easy to see how du Maurier developed a sense of distrust and dislike of the US reflected in this novel Hopefully if Britain chooses Brexit du Maurier s nightmare of US opportunism will not become fact But the dialogue in this book was weak characters not well portrayed scenery often her strong point not overly interesting Seemed of a polemical artifice rather than a real novelPOSTSCRIPT 62416 Yesterday the UK did in fact vote to leave the EU Some foreboding parallels to Rule Brittania Russia is gloating anticipating an EU breakup and opportunity for Russian incursion and aggression in Europe Donald Trump America s would be Hitler is also gloating Scotland N Ireland are now laying plans to exit the UK Easy to envision that if Trump gets into the White House he and his pal Putin they both say complimentary things about each other will repeat the Hitler Stalin pact remember Trump is the great deal maker with the US taking over Little England in exchange for Russia reoccupying the old Soviet Empire Could happen Hope not
