It took me years to get the courage to read this book. It really is a masterpiece. The writing is phenomenal and the story psychologically interesting, when you consider the difference between narrator and author.
Not porn or perverted as a story, though it deals with both. Worth its status in the literary canon! ( )

I’m not even sure where to start. Yes, it’s a masterpiece. No, it’s far from an “easy read.” And having read this novel just once, I suspect that I am barely qualified to offer any kind of critical assessment of it. Therefore, I won’t even attempt to analyze this beguiling and curious work of literary art. I will simply share with you some questions I have:

Humbert Humbert is clearly insane. Eloquent, educated, and witty, yet also lascivious, deluded, and pitiful. How does Nabokov manage to make this most unreliable of narrators (we never even learn his “true” name) so sympathetic?

Is Clare Quilty real? (I mean, within the parameters of the novel—I know all of these characters are fictional…) Or is he simply a product of Humbert’s fertile imagination? Did Humbert invent his own doppelgänger?

Is Lolita one of the first postmodern novels? Its awareness of itself as a narrative and its Möbius strip structure lead me to suspect that it is.

Intriguing, fascinating, frustrating, and peculiar, Lolita is a novel I will need to read again. But not anytime soon. ( )

OMG this book is amazing.

I feel like I should feel weird about that, because it is about a pedophile? who kidnapped and raped a girl? and then killed a guy? But I don't. Uh... not really. Well, the senior librarian here said, like, "I hate this book," when she was putting it on the shelf, which I can totally understand. I'm not gonna go and like, downplay the eroticism and overstate the intellectualism to make Lolita seem less "icky."

Lolita is icky.

But I have always responded to icky, grimy, grotesque things better than sweet, idealistic things. I don't particularly think one is better than the other (I suppose there are people who insist that "dark" stuff is closer to reality than "light" stuff, but ah... isn't that the sort of close-mindedness that distorts people's view of reality? wouldn't that make them guilty of the self-delusion they think they're above, if they thought about it? eh, anyway), but I have an allergic reaction to the earnest and sincere. I couldn't even really tell you what I consider "the earnest and sincere." I... don't want to qualify it because it will be giving my personal tastes more form than I think they actually have, and I don't want to start talking generally and semi-objectively about something so personal and subjective. Like pineapples in pizza or Panda Express, I simply cannot consume it without gagging a little.

Anyway, tangent, woah.

Lolita is amazing. How is Nabokov so good with the English language? How? Look at this, my own mangled mess. Bah, I say, bah! I cried at the end, even. I only cry for dead soldiers (seriously. I cannot read or hear about combat stories i'm like NO DON'T EVEN! WAAHH, but anything else I'm like, it's the circle of life and it moves us all), and I cried for these fictional idiots. Mad skillz, yo.

I have no idea why it is only now that I have I read this book. It was lucky, though, because I read it while also obsessed with Breaking Bad, another story about a man whose crimes you know/expect, but still you find yourself sympathizing, until later then you are like, what wait he is a pathetic ego-driven monster. Still a little different, obviously, as Humbert had already committed all his crimes when you meet him... but Walter White does seem to always have been a prideful prick. We've just been misinterpreting it as badass because we're idiots. OMG is Jesse Walter's Lolita OMG ( )

A monumental work of art. There were sentences here so exquisite that I would stop and savor them multiple times before continuing on. ( )
