Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov

I’ve been wanting to read this book for the longest time because Lana Del Rey, my favorite singer, loves to reference this book in her songs.

 

This book did not disappoint. I loved the juxtaposition between the beautiful prose and the disturbing subject matter. It’s hard to describe what I think of this book so I’ll just list some adjectives: fascinating, unsettling, crazy, tragic.

 

Overall, I was utterly captivated by this strange, yet alluring novel.

Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov,Craig Raine Lolita was... An experience. It was definitely too slow for my taste, though at the same time very well written and moving: I haven't been this angry at anything in a while, nor as disappointed in its ultimate end. After all Lolita's been through, she deserved a much better fate. It might not be that kind of book, but it pissed me off to now end how unlucky she ends up being I was warned in advance how easy it is to "fall for Humbert's manipulations", but... I honestly didn't see it? He was despicable, starting around 5% in to the very end, and I couldn't feel anything but disgust and anger for him.
