Liked the concept of time travel through an unproven drug. Did not care for the relationships of the families in the past and really only liked the man servant Roger. In the present time did not care for any of the characters except for the professor Magnus. Was surprised at the way everything turned out for the main character - losing his friend, his honesty to the doctor, becoming an addiction for needing to go back in time. ( )

"It struck me, as he spoke, how our attitude to the experiment differed. His was scientific, unemotional, it did not really concern him who was broken in the process so long as what he was attempting to prove was proved successfully; whereas I was already caught up in the mesh of history: the people who to him were puppets of a bygone age were alive for me."

I was pleasantly surprised by this one, although I didn't know what to expect going in. The story focuses on an unhappily married character named Dick Young who becomes a willing participant in an ongoing science experiment. Without saying too much, time travel is a central aspect of the plot and drives many of the main character's decisions. I usually do not care for dual-timelines but in this case they served a purpose. The historical timeline captured my attention more than the contemporary one and I often found myself wishing for Dick to take another trip back in time. Although Rebecca is considered to be du Maurier's finest literary achievement, The House on the Strand hold its own. ( )

Initially,it was confusing but the plot quickly came together. The time travel story quickly becomes a tale of addiction and is an unusual horror to say the least. ( )

This book by the author of the well known book, Rebecca is a story of Dick Young, a married man, father to two step children who is a bit bored with life. His friend , Professor Magnus, offers him an escape to his place in Cornwall and another escape through a new drug. With this new drug, Dick is able to transport to 14th century Cornwall where he is a passive observer of events. The book was published in 1969 and is the author's last successful publication. It is set in Cornwall, a mysterious mansion with romantic incidents of a Gothic novel. This book is one of her later books, written when the author is in her sixties and explores human identity and paranormal experience. The book explores the male relationship between Richard and his friend Magnus. Richard's wife, Vita (life) is the mother of two sons from a prior relationship and Dick is less than happy in his relationship with his sophisticated wife. There is little evidence of love between the couple. There is a lot of allusions to gay sex in this book and is also written in the time period of the sixties drug culture especially psychedelic drugs like mushrooms and LSD. ( )

Richard wordt door een professor met wie hij al lang bevriend is, uitgedaagd om een door de professor samengestelde drug te proberen. Met die drug ziet hij wat er zo'n 600 jaar geleden in Cornwall, waar hij een huis van de professor tijdelijk bewoont, gebeurde. Als zijn vrouw en stiefzoons ook aankomen, kost het Richard veel moeite om beide werelden uit elkaar te houden. De drug wordt uiteindelijk de professor fataal. En ook Richard komt er niet zonder kleerscheuren af.

Introduction
The simple and instant response to The House on the Strand is that it is a novel revisiting the themes expected of Daphne du Maurier, all about Cornwall, set in a mysterious mansion, and featuring romantic episodes in the region's history.
The first thing I noticed was the clarity of the air, and then the sharp green colour of the land.
Citacions

Never before, neither in my own world nor on the previous occasions when I strayed into the other, had I felt such a sense of unity. I was one of them, and they did not know it. I belonged amongst them, and they did not know it. This, I think, was the essence of what it meant to be me. To be bound, yet free; to be alone, yet in their company; to be born in my own time yet living, unknown, in theirs. (102)
"We're far too wrapped up in ourselves to encourage ghosts. Poor things, they'd wither away from tedium, unable to draw attention to themselves."
Could time be all-dimensional—yesterday, today, tomorrow running concurrently in ceaseless repetition?
When I lie I like to base the lie on a foundation of fact, for it appeases not only the conscience but a sense of justice.
. . . I thought how this thing of how well or how badly one had slept was really the great test of marital relationship; if one partner came off poorly during the night hours the other was immediately to blame, and the following day would come apart in consequence.
