I devoured this slender, terrifying novel in a couple of days. It compels you to continue, so much do you want to finish it - both so you will find out how it ends and so you will be able to leave it behind. But, of course, you can’t because the plot is too frightening, the villain too despicable, the heroine too sympathetic and Fowles’ prose too good. As a way of experiencing the book, I highly recommend it. The intensity of Fowles two engrossing characters - the predator and the captured - is carried off with graceful brutality. The fact that he was able to enter two such diametrically opposed minds, while making a worthy comment on class, sex and art, is nothing short of amazing. I was completely riveted.
