When I picked up The Collector of Lost Things, I expected an adventure-filled historical fiction. The audiobook delivered a heavy-handed treatment of man vs. nature with some truly disturbing scenes of mass animal slaughter. Not for the faint of heart or stomach. The story beyond these stomach churning scenes was nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed. I found myself drawing parallels between The Collector of Lost Things and James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales, particu When I picked up The Collector of Lost Things, I expected an adventure-filled historical fiction.

The boulders were slick with grease and had torn strips of dried flesh on them. There was a large congregation of birds: gulls and skuas squabbling and rising, watched judiciously by ravens as black as anthracite

Did any one else think that The Collector of Lost Things was one of the best books ever written?.I read it three times,and bought copies for friends and family.Absolutely loved it.I guess I am so caught up with the "survival of the fittest".I have a brother in law who told me once that after all the religious discourse and all the philosophy that we have discussed and studied ,it still seems that the world is ruled by survival of the fittest.And Eliot Saxby is the perfect existentialist to question the status quo,even in the hostile environment of the deep sea.Admittedly he works out of a troubled past,and this somewhat diminishes his worth to the other characters in the book.But for me,Eliot was a true hero,in staying put with his baby Auk and surviving all the odds that were stacked up against him.And who doesn't escape this world without a troubled past.

A fascinating novel set on a merchant ship sailing through the North Atlantic in the mid-19th Century. The tale of the trip, and the interesting characters that comprise the crew, would be novel enough, but the real story is that of the narrator and two other mysterious passengers. Great storytelling by Page as we gradually learn about the passengers and their lives before the voyage - or maybe we just think we do.

Lovely story with a mild and hopeful twist at the end. The tone was a bit more Gothic than I would have liked but that was in keeping with the time period of the setting.

Wasn't too sure what to expect when I purchased this book but was intrigued by character interactions and historical aspects.
Maucage
A bit slow and trite.

Interesting book. Some social commentary on hunting and human impact on environmental issues, but in a subtle way. Storyline was intriguing and characters were well-rounded.
Arihelm
Beautiful descriptions of the Arctic and ice. A well navigated story of love and loss and mankind's kind and brutal sides. Can we change the way we interact with the environment and each other?
A haunting depressing novel of adventure and romance on a long sea journey to the Artic in the mid 1800s. A lesson in how the Great Aur (bird) was made extinct, along with man's cruelty to animals in the wild.
