That's what happens in The Fan Club, by Irving Wallace. Four guys kidnap a famous movie star named Sharon Fields. The men delude themselves into thinking that once Sharon Fields realizes how "nice" they are, she will willingly submit to their wishes. However, she refuses to even talk to them and that's when things go wrong.
Wallace gives the four obvious reasons to be demented and dissatisfied with there marriages and love lifes. He even portrays the characters in a way that would justify some sort of sexual deviency. But nothing can justify what these men do. Yet that doesn't mean this isn't an enjoyable novel. Adam Malone is obsessed with Sharon Fields. He knows everything about her and thinks she will fall for him if only she got a chance to know him. Kile Shivley, recently home from Viet Nam, is a crude man with no scruples and no respect for women. He doesn't car that their plan involves kidnapping and possible rape. Both of these guys are beleivable. Brunner and Yost are an accountant and insurance salesman. Both are middle-aged men stuck in loveless marriages who jump at the opportunity to meet someone famous like Sharon Fields. The other two seem like normal men who would love to have a chance at someone like Sharon Fields.
The novel opens with 2 members of the fan club about to snatch Sharon Fields from her home.Read more ›
