    When Fowles isn't fair...

    Disappointing is the word. The plot is as thin as a slice of ham in a french restaurant, the characters are one-track-minded (especially Miranda, which I particularly dislike), the book doesn't really offer any philosophical "ouverture" (although sadly the author thinks it does) and absolutely doesn't include the reader in the story or challenge their reflexion. If you buy this, be sure it has a nice cover, thus illustrating the superficiality of this too long, uninteresting book. Forget about this and go read Dostoievski's "notes of the underground" if you want a bit of a challenge. If you're not into life-changing, intelligent, stimulating books, please do read "the collector" and, look on the bright side, you can always do as I did: once you've finished reading them, the many pages of this book can find a new life and a new occupation in the cosy space of your darling restroom.
