Lolita, anyone? (1 Viewer)

So I am in the process of reading the great masterpiece, Lolita, buy the author whose name I cannot currently think of.

Since it's a book that I have wanted for a while, and have just had the pleasure of getting, I was wondering if anybody else had read this piece?

And if so, what are your thoughts?

Personally, I am in love with the words the author is using. Espeically since English is his second language! Amazing.

He was bilingual, raised in an anglophile family. As such both English and Russian were his first languages. He did, however, begin writing in Russian before moving onto English.

His autobiography is quite hilarious. He talks about his first run in with English classes. Quotes are in my signature.
