review 1: 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, don't read it, watch the film instead, but if you can suspend disbelief and just go with the story, then this is a good, light read.
review 2: Told from the titular character's point of view, we follow the story of a female thief whose latest plans go awry, and forces her to deal with a trauma and a man who won't let her go. I keep meaning to see the Hitchcock film version of this, as it stars Sean Connery and Tippi Hedren, but the book is a great read. You really get to experience Marni
... moree's quandry, her desire to escape, and her struggle to get what she wants. At the same time, you still know very little about her. It's a great thriller and well worth a read if you spot a copy somewhere. less

I really like this book. Though it would have been nice to have more closure at the end.
Hitchcock made this book famous, in reality I enjoyed the book more than the film.
One of the rare cases in which the movie is better than the book.
Read this years ago. Rereading it still had me intrigued.
Really good book - and the film did it justice.
