I've read two books of this author just before the eye collector, and my opinion was split. Therapy was a great read, if somewhat unrealistic. Splinter was an utter rubbish, I was about to give up on Sebastian Fitzek thinking that he was a one trick pony..
I had my doubts a few times through an eye collector as there are quite a few disjoint storylines in the book. But as overall it was a fast paced good page turner, I persevered.. Even though I predicted "whodunit " beforehand, it was still a surprise. I will definitely read another book of Mr Fitzek. Very impressed with this book. It should have been so much better than it is. Like a recipe, all the ingredients seem to be there, yet the result is lacking in flavour and disappointing to the senses.
I thought that the idea of beginning with the final chapter and reading your way through to the first was definitely novel and could have been clever, if he had actually pulled it off. But he didn't. The intention seemed to be unworkable and he might just as well not have bothered. The content of the story is actually quite good , but poorly written and just does not flow.
Maybe the problem lies with the translation.

Who knows? However, with the right direction it could make a really good film, albeit gruesome at times. It is well worth a read though at 49p! You can never expect the expected from a Sebastian Fitzek novel and The Eye Collector was no different. Journalist and ex-police officer Alexander Zorbach has been implicated as the chief suspect in a serial murder case and unwittingly finds himself at the centre of a sadistic game of hide and seek. This very clever and highly imaginative storyline twists and weaves in so many directions that to predict what was going to happen next was just impossible.
A book that will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout. One person found this helpful. At first it seemed strange that the chapters go backwards but this makes no difference whatsoever. I found the German names a little confusing, particularly the geographical ones, and confess I tended to get a bit mixed up with the cops as their names seemed similar. At least this time our main guy, Alex Zorbach, is a journalist, not a detective although he has been a cop previously - makes a change. I couldn't believe the scrapes he managed to get himself into.
I found that every time I had to put this book down I just could not wait to pick it up; this was so frustrating as I am unable to read too much in one go. I needed to know what happened next but as soon as I did I needed to know what happened after that. There was no let up! So, the pages kept on turning right to the very end. In a way I was quite sorry that I'd finished it and so was no longer reading it.
Maybe I should then have started at the back and read it backwards!

This one of those books that keeps you guessing right to to the last few pages of the book. It's full of suspense, twists and turns all the way through. The characters are well written and you do empathise with the main one and the premise that he is looking for a serial killer on a stop watch is not something I have come across in a book before although it has been done in films before. I read this in a few nights it would have been quicker but I have been bogged down by the lurgie.
This is the first book I have read by this author and it most certainly won't be the last. Strange for a novel's chapters to be numbered in reverse and to be honest I can't, even now, decide whether it was entirely necessary. An unusual tale of father's love or not for his children. Clearly we are supposed to think that Alexander either has an evil twin or is a sufferer of dissociative identity disorder, but by half way through the story, I was beginning to have another suspect in mind, however I was wrong so well done the author for keeping up the tension to the very end I bought this when it was on offer for kindle, as I often do, and really enjoyed it.
It's very fast paced, and I read it very quickly. The characters were developing well, and you felt an affinity towards them, but it loses a star for me because I felt they were not quite finished, or deep enough. It rushes through to the end and could have probably coped with being a little longer so that the ideas and characters could have been explored more fully. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would certainly recommend it as a riveting read.
