Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov was an author, lepidopterist, and chess composer. He was born in April 1899 in Russia and moved to America in 1940. He joined Wellesley College as a resident lecturer in 1941 and founded Wellesley's Russian Department. The authors works were both fiction as well as nonfiction. His first nine novels were written Russian. Some of his English novels are Pale Fire and Transparent Things. He wrote a number of short story collections, like Nabokov's Quartet and Nine Stories. He also penned down several dramas and poems and worked on translations in English, Russian, and French. His non-fictional works include autobiographical books, critiquing work, and a book on butterflies named Nabokov's Butterflies. Nabokov passed away in 1977 and was buried in Switzerland. He was survived by his wife Vera Slonim. His family mansion has been converted into a museum in St. Petersburg and his valuable butterfly collection was donated to the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University and to the Zoology Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Ummm...

I did not like this book. No matter what it symbolises, no matter what a great critique it is, I just can't read about paedophilia and sexual violence. It's a strict pet peeve of mine. If you can read this book and understand its 'beauty', good for you.

Artistic

It is the one the best books, you will come across which is at the same time poetic,artisitc, have a great story and involving.
If you are thinking about reading this book in a bus or somewhere crowded. Don't. You will kill the book. Read with full involvement and relish each and every word. I enjoyed the book so much that I willingly went slow with the book so that I could read it for more days.
Simply Amazing, Just Don't hand it over to your kid.

Classically unconventional

Lolita is a classic by all means. Nabokov's language is beautiful and the story has a soul that compels the reader to empathise with the protagonist. The author has dealt with an unconventional and controversial subject with utmost dexterity. People who have a taste for great literature, especially from sexually conservative societies like India, must read this book.

Lo.Lee.Ta

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins.My sin, my soul. Lo-Lee-Ta.The tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps..."
This is a gem of a book.
I read it once, and I am reading it again. Somehow the book has managed to become even more beautiful and entertaining.
An absolute must-read to anyone who loves reading.
Despite the controversial subject matter of the novel, Lolita is a comedy, and simply, a joy to read.

lo lee ta

To put it in a nutshell, its a beautiful book. The language used here is just amazing,beautiful and genius. Given that English is the authors second language, he still owns it and makes love to it. the words he uses to tell his story perfectly conveys the various emotions expressed here directly to the core of your heart.I felt his pain and fears. like i was actually there near him in the room and in his trips. Im not going to comment on the content the book is about cause quiet frankly you already know about it if you are are reading this. Everyone has their own understanding over it. Some sy

A deeply felt and a profound novel

The first time when I heard about the book was when I was in school, but never had a chance to read it through, albeit in bits and pieces from the school library collection. Now after so many years reading and examining one of toughest novels like Lolita was quiet interesting. To be able to say that for the sake of love if one is wanting to demolishing one's own set of values, morals and the stated norms of love that one grew up feeling comfortable in is, strictly speaking, something of a no-no. Needless to say, it was no less than a struggle to deal with what the novel has to offer me. Above

A Compelling Read

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul."

Lolita is essentially a confession, a man's perspective of his lustful and delinquent life, torn between his love for Lolita, a twelve-year-old "nymphet", and his carnal desires that constitute his personality.

Nabokov excels in engaging the readers in this compelling piece of fiction with his vivid expressions and complex verbalism. Though a little intimidating at times, this novel is a must read for all literature enthusiasts.

Classic!

There is a reason this book is put in the best 100 books of all time. The writing style of the author is absolutely enthralling. The style in which he describes a particular feeling or any random conversation, has absolutely no match. Even with an offensive and revolutionary topic, he manages to keep the reader close and supportive of the protagonist's pain, love and lust for Lolita.

Tragic-comic funny romantic novel, every sentence is a delight

A must read and a literary classic. Nabokov represents emotions and thoughts with mathematical visual precision. You can feel that each word is weighed against the rest of the sentence, against the rest of the paragraph against the rest of the novel, following the strict tone of the entire piece. Unity is one of the main features of art.
Every page gets laughs.. sometimes its laugh out loud funny. A delight to read..
