Didn't read it.
Only that I love Nabakov's writing. This was my first & I will definitely seek out more of his books. I am also a big fan of David Foster Wallace.
An absolutely wonderful listening experience for me. The best reader I've encountered in my approx 1-year new dedication to audio-books. I will also seek out other Irons' readings.
Not extreme but definitely moved in many different ways at different times.
Highly recommend this book. I don't give such praise easily.
Simply fantastic in every way, except for the way in which most people would concur! A purchase of this brilliant work should come sooner than later.
I was excited to read this book after I saw it recommended if you liked You by Caroline Kepnes and I LOVED that book. But this just fell flat. I couldn't wait for it to be over and just kept waiting for it to get better.
everything about this was great. Especially the narrator he really told the story well. . This isn't a review. Not sure why audible has to be 20 words to say a few good thing.
I can not
The ones with Humbert in them
This is no way to review a masterpiece. Our Beloved N. would loathe this kind of formulaic review. Jeremy Irons does more than read Lolita, he is the only voice this book was ever meant to have. I wish we could know what Nabokov would have thought of this presentation.
Love this novel, and Irons' performance is amazing! Fantastic read. Banned for no reason. Sigh
I'm sure you have heard that the book both beautiful and disturbing. The unknown element is likely the narrator. Jeremy Irons read the book beautifully. It was clear and engaging. His voice felt like drinking hot chocolate.
The contrast between the beautiful way he writes and the horrible things he writes about, is absolutely wonderful. The narrator takes this to a whole new level!!
