    PDF John Fowles #194; PDF The Collector PDFEPUB #215; #194; cravenjobscouk collector epub, The Collector MOBII read this when I was very young Young enough that anything with a sexual connotation was interesting to me Even really perverse deviations like this A collector of butterflies 'collects' a girl and holds her prisoner His deviation is far deeper than merely sex But of course sex is implied all the timeThere are two sorts of kept women those gold diggers who actively sought it and those trophy wives who had never planned for it and had been actively courted This is a trophy wife by force not a sex slave but a 'wife'It's a very original story writing at it's finest And it's creepy very very creepyThanks to Loederkoningin for inspiring me to write this reviewThere are a lot of excelle

    PDF John Fowles #194; PDF The Collector PDFEPUB #215; #194; cravenjobscouk collector epub, The Collector MOBIThis novel was unlike anything I’ve read before and the character of Frederick will certainly leave a lasting memory I don’t think there’s been a character that’s made my skin crawl or forced me to talk back shout at a book on so many an occasion – well done FowlesI definitely think Book Readers should have this book on their shelf

    PDF John Fowles #194; PDF The Collector PDFEPUB #215; #194; cravenjobscouk collector epub, The Collector MOBIImpotent sociopath kidnaps beautiful art student Told partly from the sociopath's perspective That's my jam I should have loved this bookBut something left me cold I suppose it may have been all the bitching and complaining the beautiful art student did in her stupid diary What a helpless twit Not to imply that I'd be brave and cunning or anythingif someone kidnapped me In fact I'm pretty sure I'd be a helpless twit as well But I'll be goddamned if I'd expect anyone to enjoy reading the daily chronicles of what a helpless twit I'd beenThe ending really made me smile though The creepy ending made it all worthwhile Crazy fucker

    PDF John Fowles #194; PDF The Collector PDFEPUB #215; #194; cravenjobscouk collector epub, The Collector MOBIThis novel is over fifty years old and it holds up very well It is the rudimentary skeleton that is upheld fleshed by current events given a brain by contemporary writers ad nauseum by CSI Law and Order Law and Order SVU Medium Criminal Minds et al Though its semi predictable the end is nonetheless terribly terrific That there are two strands of narrative is sometimes a revelation sometimes an encumbrance like living through a terrible ordeal not once but twice Both psychological documents are wondrous to behold The Collector is a story we've seen usurped once and again in multiple films TV

    PDF John Fowles #194; PDF The Collector PDFEPUB #215; #194; cravenjobscouk collector epub, The Collector MOBI35 stars Thought by some to be the first psychological thriller this book left me slightly wanting The Collector is broken into three parts The first part is from Clegg's point of view Clegg is a man obsessed with a young woman and decides to collect her much as he collects butterflies The second part is from the woman's point of view once she's been collected This was the part that I found unsatisfying There were some observations in this section about class money and society which probably were pertinent in the 60's which is when this book was written than they are now I found this portion slowed down the pacing considerably The third part goes back to Clegg's point of viewClegg is where this book lives The peeks inside his mind while presented as normal thoughts on his part are truly chilling to us readers who are sane I shivered to read some of the things he was thinking These psychological tics and the detached way in
