Book Review: The Collector by John Fowles


The Collector by John Fowles
Rating: 4/5

This book really freaked me out.

The first part of the novel is told from the first-person narrative of Frederick Clegg, an odd and lonely city hall clerk who collects butterflies. We immediately learn of his obsession with Miranda, a local art student he never met nor has spoken with. Since the story is told from his point of view, we see how he follows and stalked her, learning about her and judging her. It's extremely creepy to see his thought process and how he interprets his actions... which to him, is all because he loves her.

This book makes me want to stop smiling and being nice to strangers, because you never know how that simple act of kindness could be misconstrued as love in a sad and lonely mind. Okay, okay, that probably won't happen to me but after reading this you can't help but wonder in the back of your mind if that odd ball guy/girl at your job/coffee shop/etc that you occasionally smile and say hello to has a shrine and lock of your hair which he worships every night. (kidding here... sort of).

The second part of the novel is from Miranda's point of view while she's held captive by Frederick. This part, I have to admit wasn't as interesting as Fredericks but it gave the novel, on a whole, good balance. So we can see both sides of this creepy story.

I won't give any spoilers here but it's an interesting read which will surely creep you out. Especially since every night on the news we hear about missing woman, children, and anything on Dateline MSNBC.

How I sleep

The DVD menu screen for Best of Both Worlds

I come home from work, sit on the couch and half watch TV while I fiddle around on the internet. That's how I spend most evenings and weekends. Yes, I know, I'm a terribly exciting person (sarcasm). But when I finally decide to go up to bed I must fall asleep to Star Trek The Next Generation.

You see, I cut on the DVD, get into bed and turn my back to the television. I've seen every episode so many times, I can imagine the scene in my head, I only need the words. Of course I usually fall asleep 10 or 20 minutes into the show, so it takes me maybe 3 or 5 days to finish one episode.

Sometimes I feel as though there are two me's


Sometimes I feel as though there are two me's, one coasting directly on top of the other: The superficial me, who nods when she's supposed to nod and says what she's supposed to say, and some other, deeper part, the part that worries and dreams... Most of the time they move along in sync and I hardly notice the split, but sometimes it feels as though I'm two whole different people and I could rip apart at any second.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Must read this book.

The creative person is...

"The creative person is both more primitive and more cultured, more destructive and more constructive, crazier and saner, than the average person."
