Book Review: Lolita


5 Stars


This one was a bit of an eye-opener. To be expected considering the content. To my surprise, I finished this very quickly. Hugely absorbing. Equal parts fascinating and appalling. Written as a fictitious memoir and with such old-fashioned flowery prose, and yet it was so unexpectedly modern. Loved the deep perspective. Got a real feel for both Lolita and this terrible, loving, pitiful, disgusting creature Humbert Humbert.

Give it a chance. If you can put your squeamishness aside, read it.
