Jamaica Inn is a novel by the English writer Daphne du Maurier, first published in 1936. It was later made into a film, also called Jamaica Inn, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It is a period piece set in Cornwall in 1820. It was inspired by du Maurier's 1930 stay at the real Jamaica Inn, which still exists and is a pub in the middle of Bodmin Moor. The plot follows a group of murderous wreckers who run ships aground, kill the sailors and steal the cargo.

Jamaica Inn is a traditional inn on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Built as a coaching inn in 1750, and having an association with smuggling, it was the setting for Daphne du Maurier's 1936 novel Jamaica Inn, which was made into the film Jamaica Inn in 1939 by Alfred Hitchcock. Located just off the A30, near the middle of the moor close to the hamlet of Bolventor, it was used as a staging post for changing horses.

Jamaica Inn opens with echoes of Dracula: a carriage rattling through a desolate landscape and wild weather to a place where even the locals won't go, so ferocious is its reputation. Inside rides Mary Yellan, newly orphaned and en route from the tame farmland of the Helford area to the rainswept moors of nineteenth-century Cornwall and the married home of her aunt, a woman once known for her rich curls and girlish laughter. We are in the territory of the gothic novel, but one with an undercurrent of modern sensibility.

Daphne du Mauier is an absolutely beautiful writer who is very easy to read. If you want to get into modern classics she is definately a good place to start.

The premise and set up of this book was absolutely great. You are quickly sucked into this mysterious world of gangsters and dread. I could actually feel myself walking through the forests and sitting inside Jamaica Inn. It is a medium paced story and I was never bored and interested throughout the novel.

The reason why I gave this a 3 star read was because I figured out the mystery while I was reading it. This could be perhaps because I do read quite a lot. I also didn't love a part of the ending with respect to the main character and her love interest.

*possible spoilers*
I really do feel that she gave up so much of herself to be with a person that frankly didn't treat her too well or just wasn't giving her the things that she wanted in life. It seemed too whimsical and fluttery of you ask me.

Overall it was a great book and I definitely recommend reading it especially if you like atmospheric books where you can get completely lost in.
3.5/5 stars
We open the story with Mary Yellan making a journey in dreary weather to the Jamaica Inn, which just the name of incites fear in the surrounding area. Mary would have never chosen this life for herself but it was her mother's dying wish that Mary move off the farm and in with her Aunt Patience. Upon arriving at her new residence she notices her Aunt is not as happy and beautiful as she remembered. Rather Aunt Patience is ragged and cowers in fear of her husband, Joss Merlyn. What exactly is Aunt Patience afraid of and what are the secrets behind the mysterious Jamaica Inn.

I quite enjoyed the book though at times it seemed terribly slow. The characters all had distinct personalities which Du Maurier did a wonderful job of displaying throughout the book. While not exactly a scary story it holds your interest as you try to figure out just what is going on at the inn. My only complaints were the slowness in parts of the book and that the twist wasn't exactly surprising. Though there being a surprise isn't a requirement when a book is written as well as this was.
Jamaica Inn by the English writer Daphne du Maurier is a classic. The story begins with 20 year-old Mary Yellan making her way to Jamaica Inn in a horse drawn coach, the darkness of the moors and the beating rain making her very anxious.

Mary lived on a farm in Helford but had to leave after her mother died. As she was dying she asked Mary to go live with her Aunt Patience at Jamaica Inn. The journey to her aunt is anything but comforting.

Upon arrival Mary finds her aunt a different person fro the sparkling, witty laughing woman she remembered. Aunt Patience seems aged 50 years and mutters constantly. She is clearly frightened of something and Mary comes to realize very quickly what, or shall I say who, is the reason. Mary’s Uncle Joss is a wicked man and he has illegal business affairs right there at the inn.

The plot follows a group of murderous wreckers, Joss seemingly one who is in charge. They run ships aground using lanterns on the shore and kill the sailors then steal the cargo. Jamaica Inn is never open to the public yet every few weeks men come in the dark of the night, silently unloading carts of merchandise they have stolen from the wrecked ships.

Mary foolishly becomes attracted to Joss’s younger brother, Jem. She realizes Jem does not have anything to do with her uncle’s murderous business although he is a horse thief.

One day Mary decides to track her uncle across the moors so she can report the lot of them to the law. But it gets dark earlier than she thought it would and Mary is stranded, cold and wet and alone in the dark. Miraculously a horse drawn buggy comes along and she is rescued. Francis Davey, an albino vicar who lives in the next village, picks Mary up and takes her to his home. She tells the vicar the improbable tale of her uncle’s business expecting him to help her. He instead points out some weak points in her story and suggests she is letting her imagination get away from her.

There is much more but if you haven’t read Du Maurier’s classic, I don’t want to give away the rest of the story. Soon I would like to read her other popular book, Rebecca.

What would you like to eat if you were arriving on a damp, cold wintery evening to a near deserted inn on the moors? I would want a hot brisket dinner and loads of tea! That's what I was inspired to prepare after reading this book. (Photos are on my website)
Before I start my review, a word of warning if you buy Kindle versions of Daphne Du Maurier's books:

Some unscrupulous entity has been selling shortened and reworded Kindle versions of Du Maurier's books. There is nothing in the product description that states that it's not the authentic version of the book. These versions are meant to deceive the buyer. Amazon posts the same reviews to both the real versions of the books and the fake versions, even though they are not at all the same product. To be sure you are buying the legitimate Kindle edition, check the product details to make sure you are buying the version published by Little, Brown, and Company and sold by Hachette Book Group.

My review of Jamaica Inn: Jamaica Inn was first published 80 years ago, but it has held up well. Du Maurier does a great job of making the English moor into a dark and forbidding place. The days are short. The rain is constant. The rocks are large and sharp. One false step and hidden bogs will suck you down to your death. The Inn itself is cold and damp, rundown and isolated. Life is difficult. Du Maurier populates her story with complex and fascinating characters - a young and innocent leading lady, her violent and alcoholic uncle, her meek and abused aunt, a charming and dangerous horse thief, a violent gang of criminals that lures ships to their doom on the rocky shore, and an albino (!) vicar. There's plenty of violence, but it's not as explicit as it would be in a book written today. It was fascinating to see how her situation affected our young heroine. The ending left me with a lot to think about. I heartily recommend Jamaica Inn if you are a fan of gothic suspense. The writing may seem a little bit dated by today's standards, but it's a quick read and Du Maurier is terrific author.
