Though it should first be said that obsession and delusions go hand in hand.
This is the best I could come up with since most of my reviews have quotes that accompany them. I decided to take straight from the authors words instead. This book will invoke so many discussions and feelings amongst the masses. I can understand why it’s revered, yet I could not see myself reading it again. Whether you empathize with Humbert or not you will not escape the wordsmith that is Nabokov.
The book is full of murders, obsessions, madness, and abuse. Ridiculously readable, so much so that the only complaint can be that it was not 200 or 300k words, as perfectly placed as only Nabokov can. There is a narrative irony, but that does not mean anything.
The subject of pedophilia is deeply disturbing, but does that mean we should ignore it? I hope not. What Nabokov has accomplished is bringing an awareness to the topic. If you find this book so upsetting then I would suggest you stop watching the news, get off the internet and move to an underground cave where you won't be exposed to anything you deem offensive or disturbing. Or just stick to reading shallow romance novels that leave you feeling warm and fuzzy instead of a book that will raise your awareness the issue.
