This is indeed the Nabokov classic. I enjoyed the book; however there were portions in French with no English translation, which is why this product got 4 instead of 5 stars. I needed to use web resources to translate some portions of the book. It would be nice if the translations were put in as footnotes, or at the end of the book.
Book review: I was inspired to read this book from the lyrics in the Police song Don't Stand So Close to Me that read:
"It's no use he sees her
He starts to shake and cough
Just like the old man in
That book by Nabokov"
The book is a tale about
I'll try to be general as not to spoil the book. The book gives a peak into the depths of a man's mind and self-justifications for hebephilia. It also gives a victim's perspective and details her role in her own victimization. I can imagine this book being emotionally very difficult to read, especially for victims of sexual abuse. The book is done as tastefully as someone could have made it approaching this subject and is not pornographic in nature, but some parts will undoubtably make people uncomfortable.
