Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov by the middle of the book, it was like someone was set to dry my brains out. this book is equivalent to reading freudian theoretical papers - that put the most active minds to sleep! i previously read that this book is risqué and cutting-edge, all i found was boring, obsessive treatise/memoirs of a middle-aged man about a twelve-year old girl. nabokov, i had high hopes for you, but after reading this book - i feel uninspired to venture into any of your other writings.
