    PDF John Fowles à à The Collector PDF ☆ collector epub, The Collector MOBIRather than go into the plot details I'd rather touch on the larger metaphors of the book in this review Although the basic plot is chilling enough on its own A man kidnaps a beautiful and intelligent young girl the parts that truly disturbed me had to do with what I believe Fowles was saying about modern culture and the rise of the middle class Though this book is decidedly British in many ways I think the issues he raises are applicable to any society where a large middle class is created in a relatively short amount of time For me this book is asking whether financial stability really leads to morality and fulfilling lives as in Major Barbara or if perhaps we actually lose our souls once our bellies are fedAs some have mentioned in other reviews Miranda is the stereotypical posh young artist Born rich it's easy for her to dismiss the complain

    PDF John Fowles à à The Collector PDF ☆ collector epub, The Collector MOBIFredrick is a clerk and butterfly collector who wins some money that lets him retire Fredrick is lonely and has trouble getting along with others the only people he really has are his aunt and cousin He watches an art student named Miranda who starts to become his obsession When he suddenly has a lot of free time and money on his hands his daydreams about Miranda turn dark and he plans to kidnap her and hold her hostage in the cellar of an old cottage he buys until she gets to know him and falls in love with himI really enjoyed the book personally I liked the writing style and even though its about something macabre Fowles doesn't make it exploitative or gore y to shock the reader A lot of the focus is on the characters change and development as well as their thought process through out I think it's really well done both the Fredrick and Miranda parts are distinct and f

    PDF John Fowles à à The Collector PDF ☆ 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 excellent reviews on GR about this book but in my opinion they all give far too much away The book is like an onion The outside skin then the world within layer upon layer And at it's resolution uite unexpectedly there is a tiny green shoot Every detail you know about t

    PDF John Fowles à à The Collector PDF ☆ collector epub, The Collector MOBIThis is one of those boy meets girl chloroforms her throws her in the back of the van and stuffs her in his basement type stories I knew that already and so I was really not expecting to be coshed on the head and chucked down in the basement as well and tied hands and feet and gagged so that all I could hear was the uiet reasonable voice of working class loner Fred Clegg aged 22 explaining how he’d fallen in love from afar with the unattainable art student

    PDF John Fowles à à The Collector PDF ☆ 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 à à The Collector PDF ☆ 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 real
