    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.

    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-...

    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.

    Terrific

    A beautiful poignant masterpiece about the erotic desires of a middle aged man for his step daughter who he nicknames Lolita. Filled with equal parts humor , literary devices , heartbreak and depth this book is a must for all above age 15. A mature storyline with a dramatic ending it is definetly not to be missed just like Nabokov 's other books.

    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 a...

    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.

    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.
    About the product, it's good. Penguin Publications makes sure they use the best quality of paper for their books and provide superior binding. Flipkart's delivery and packaging was superb as always.

    Poetry.Art.Magic

    Recommended for: anyone who loves beauty in words

    Warning: If you get put off by poetry and ornate literature and expect the story to unfold like a fast paced novel, please pass this on.

    Lo-Lee-Ta starts with a poetry, takes you into a journey of poetic bliss, touches your soul. You forget the whole world around you while this timeless classic pulls you into its fathomless beauty told through the ornate words of HH. Loved it. ABSOLUTELY loved it.
