Hailed as the first modern psychological thriller, The Collector is the internationally bestselling novel that catapulted John Fowles into the front rank of contemporary novelists. This tale of obsessive love--the story of a lonely clerk who collects butterflies and of the beautiful young art student who is his ultimate quarry--remains unparalleled in its power to startle and mesmerize.

Good beginning and ending but the middle of the book drags on with a good deal of philosophical and nonsensical rantings from one of the two major characters. Good potential but cannot recommend. I would try another Fowles book however...EAF
To realize that this book was the inspiration for a serial killer makes it just that much more horrifying.
