Yes, perhaps, after I've read everything else by Nabokov.
At first, when I realised the plot (I had no idea beforehand). Later, realising the hellishness of it all, even for him.
Everything, it was beyond comparison. He did justice to the beauty of the prose.
Not necessarily. It is a book to be cherished - I didn't want it to end.
This is the best book I have listened to on Audible, all things considered. The prose is comparable to the Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, though this story is a class apart.
I was astounded by Nabokov skill in telling a story that is so repulsive that the reader squirms and his ability to draw out empathy. I found myself questioning my own values on numerous subjects.
Jeremy Irons is H. H. BRILLANT!
Catching up on the literary classics brought me to this performance of Lolita by Jeremy Irons. Never have I listened to a book reading with this quality of expression.
I don't think anyone but Jeremy Irons could read this novel. Of course, Jeremy Irons could read a phone book and I would listen to it, but his cultured voice is especially suited for this story.
Due to the pedophilia, this novel isn't for everyone. It is well-written and I can see why it is a classic.
I mainly enjoy YA literature, though I do venture to other genres if the description of a book catches my fancy. I get attached stories.
I was surprised how absolutely engrossed I was in the story. At first it was a bit unnerving to think the narrator was talking about young girls, but then after a while you seem to forget.
It was so eloquently written, and Jeremy Irons read it so wonderfully, that I really would have finished it in a day had I not been obligated to do other things.
