#johnfowles postmodern occult thriller mind-bender. I remember reading it in 2 days, feeling each subsequent chapter rip the carpet from under me, as the story asked - but never answered - the question “who is Conchin?” Freud, Crowly, Picasso?

The Collector | John Fowles
post image
Pickpick

The Collector is a creepy, wonderful piece of postmodern literature which you don't want to drop til the end. You have the stalker Fred who kidnaps the woman of his "dreams" and thinks it's the only right thing he could have done. On the other side are the diary entries of Miranda and her thoughts of her kidnapper and her own life. Two so extreme different lives that get involved but couldn't be further from each other.
