The story begins slow and unclear. Then the auther pulls the story together to create a mysterious and suspenseful journey. John Fowles shows two different points of view, one of the abductor and one of the abducted. My own opinion is the first part, the kidnapper's thoughts, is very well written and revealing. You can see into deranged man's life and thoughts. The second part, the veiw of the kidnapped, I found much less thrilling and interesting, though. The author ended the book wonderfully with generally back forth thoughts between the two main characters.

I wanted to read this book, since it is mentioned so many times on the TV show and the book of Criminal Minds. It did not disappoint my expectations. It was a little hard to get into at first, but soon I couldn't put it down.

I read this book years ago and I'm talking some 37 years ago. This book has stuck with me for years and I found it very enjoyable. Some of these older books are great! Try "Bunny Lake is missing" or "Joy in the morning" All of these books are GREAT!!!!!!

Fowles has created an excellent, gripping story. I couldn't put it down! Without going into great detail, I was moved to tears by the end of the book. You feel as if you are actually watching this unfold right before you.

This book kept me on the edge. I don't think I have ever read a book faster. The guy in this book is not your typical crazy guy and I can't imagine the mind it took to write this, especially the way John Fowles did. INCREDIBLE BOOK!

I finished this book a couple of days ago and I find myself thinking about this book wishing it wasn't over. It was 500 pages so it was a nice long read. I felt as if these characters where a part of my family. You won't regret your purchase!

Written in 1963, it still provides modern day parallels that we can relate to. Although the beginning drags and he is very unfocused, the author manages to settle in to the story eventually, providing an intriguing look into the mind of a madman and the abducted. The first part of the book follows the thoughts of the mad man. In the second part we see the thoughts of the abducted. The author goes back and forth between their thoughts afterwards and we are left with the resolution of the story. Of course, you'll have to read it to find out what that is!
