El libro es perfecto para lo que yo lo necesitaba en el grado de estudios ingleses de la Universidad de Zaragoza y mucho mas barato que la compra habitual.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Surprisingly powerful; No surprise this book has been esteemed so highly for so long. 15 de marzo de 2015

I've read a lot of the so called "dark" psychological thrillers, including Jack Ketchum's "The Girl Next Door." This being said, I am of the opinion that author John Fowles delivers the most powerful and captivating story by providing what so many of those other books have missed. Furthermore, this book doesn't have to over-rely on gruesome details or graphic imagery to convey a touching story into the mind of the reader. I definitely did not expect the ending and almost didn't see there was a chapter four lurking back there. Author does a good job of providing suspense.

My only complaint is that the book could have been shorter by cutting the endless ranting about G.P. I know, I get it, it serves as very important character development for Emma and to give the reader further insight as to her behavior in relationship to "Caliban," but after like one hundred pages of it I literally sighed and wanted to punch G.P. in his huge nose.

Otherwise, the development of both characters is excellent. Emma's part is of profound importance in thoroughly painting (no pun intended) Frederick, and by the fourth chapter you get an outstanding picture of who these two people are.

I was worried that this book might have just been a lot of hype on the coattails of the Charles Ng and Leonard Lake case, but it really is a powerfully sad novel that stands on its own merits.
3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The book was ahead of it's time, but in today's world it's predictable and slow paced. 19 de abril de 2017

I can see where the book is ahead of it's time. But, in today's psychological thrillers. This book is slow and bland. (Not being disrespectable here.)
The story starts with a lonely man Frederick Clegg that has come by with a large sum of money and now he can buy anything he wants. But Clegg is so damaged and different he longs for Miranda a young and beautiful art student. He watches her, he loves her in his weird way. All he wants is for her to love him. He plans for her and builds the perfect place for her.

Then he waits for the right time to take her for his own. He lures her to his van and he chloroforms her and kidnaps her.
The story is about how he wants to control her, but at first he does not want to hurt her. He wants to love her and he wants her to love him.

Miranda does everything she can to make him let her go. But, she makes one mistake and Frederick's feeling for her change. He no longer believes her or will help her as much.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas As a fan of the psychological thriller genre, it was interesting to read one of the first 2 de julio de 2016

Considered by many to be the first psychological thriller, The Collector is the story of Frederick Clegg, a lonely, obsessive man, and Miranda, the beautiful young art student whom he kidnaps and holds captive in his basement.

The story begins with Clegg’s perspective, and then switches a third of the way through to Miranda’s diary entries, allowing considerable insight into both characters. In many ways they are opposites: where Miranda has a vibrant zest for life and a passion for creating beauty, Clegg is consumed by a desire to capture and possess the beauty that has always been absent from his life.

It’s an interesting character study. And while Fowles never makes excuses for Clegg’s actions, he carefully presents him as a human rather than a monster. I was fascinated (and not really surprised) to learn that several serial killers and kidnappers have referenced The Collector as the inspiration and justification for their crimes.

My problems with the book have little to do with the book itself and more to do with what I have been conditioned to expect from psychological thrillers. It’s hard reading a book that was ahead of its time or the first of its kind when you’re already so familiar with what the genre has become. Fowles’ story may have been inventive and shocking when it was published, but approaching it decades later, I found the plot to be rather predictable and diluted. Again, this is one of those situations where “it’s not you (the book), it’s me.”

Ultimately, I’m glad to have read The Collector to understand and appreciate its influence on the genre.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Liked the first half! 30 de marzo de 2014

I really loved the first half of this book. SPOILER ALERT..............the first half is written from the side of the man and I thought it was interesting. Just as you know what is going to happen they switch and tell the whole thing over from the woman's perspective. I was already invested in the story and knew what had happened so it was like immediately rewatching a movie you just saw. I was a bit bored and my mind wandered as the woman talked about a lot of art stuff and her snooty friends, I really didn't care about her and her back story. When we finally got back to where we left off the ending was not a surprise but a wrapping up. I know a lot of people liked this book and I really did enjoy the first half, maybe if the female character had been more interesting to me it would have been better???
2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Boring and Lackluster 24 de abril de 2017

I really wanted to love this book, but I just can't; the writer's style doesn't float my boat. The plot isn't as interesting as it could have been and goes along a very vague storyline. Do we know why this man has the issues he does? No. The describing factors in this book are lackluster, and the author has a strong liking for the word "Well" and the word "Etcetera" and I mean STRONG liking, to the point where it gets really annoying to read this book for long periods of time. I won't give away anything else, other than the story doesn't have take any twists and turns down a shocking ending, and I wouldn't recommend it.
