This post apparently contained an image that was dragged into the post editor. Sorry, but any text contained in the post after this point has been lost.

This should be no surprise, among strangest books ever written.

Both The Magus & The Collector are completely different with brilliant stories. The very first 8 pages of  A Maggot were great read, later the rest wasn't too keen to have me keep reading it further...

The Magus by John Fowles- probably best read for the first time before the age of 25.  The other one of his that is similar is The Collector.

The Collector is on my to-read list. :)

I read a lot - some books get pretty strange.

I'm loath to go into any real detail because it might impact free interpretation and presentation.

I will, however, offer up two examples of favorite strange books which are rather different.

Katherine Dunn - Geek Love


If you haven't read it - hmmm, don't even know what to say here.

and

Yerzi (Jerzy) Kazinski - The Painted Bird


I am quite taken by thispainting - I read the book about 20 years ago, and this brings up some long forgotten psychoemotional and psychoneuroimmulogical response.  Yep, what a strange powerful book that was!
