Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant One of the cult classics of the 20th century, full of labyrinthine twists and lyrical wanderings through the Greek landscape. A must-read...at least twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites This is a great book with lots of mystery and intrigue. You won't know what is going on until the end. If you liked the Michael Douglas Movie "The Game", you will like this book, because the plot for the game is strikingly similar.

About the Author

John Fowles (1926-2005) was educated at Oxford and subsequently lectured in English at universities in Greece and the UK. The success of his first novel, The Collector, published in 1963, allowed him to devote all his time to writing. His books include the internationally acclaimed and bestselling novels The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, and Daniel Martin. Fowles spent the last decades of his life on the southern coast of England in the small harbor town of Lyme Regis.
