Is it just me or do we talk about this book a lot less than we used to?

What is your favorite cover?

Reading this right now. I've read Lolita before, so I thought I'd read the annotated edition this time around. It's kind of tedious though, reading pages upon pages about how Nabokov referenced some 19th century work I've never heard of. I wonder if it really adds anything.

If you like Lolita, read Ada or Ardor. It's the only other book I've read by Nabokov which has prose that matches up to Lolita.

would you recommend reading it before Pale Fire? I wasn't sure which one to check out next

Yes, I'd recommend it. Note that the first 4 chapters are quite dense, which can be off-putting at first, so if you're trying the book out make sure you continue for another few chapters.

That's a strange but good book. I'll have to re-read it sometime. What other classic novel has:

flying carpets
water powered telephones
dueling
incest
muslim invasions

?

If you like this book, then you are a closet pedo. I think the story was disgusting, would not read again.

This is the version that I read, and I'm glad I did, if only for the French.
Some of the notes at very insightful, the cover looks like shit though.

I know this is bait but I read Lolita a short while ago, and it seems to me that everyone who gets upset about this book has clearly never read it. The protagonist is a self-admitted pervert, but the sexual writing is done tastfully enough so that even the non pedos can appreciate it. And the protagonist condemns himself as a villain by the end anyway, so it doesn't even challenge traditional sexual mores.

You'd think with how taboo this book is that it'd have tried something like justifying pedophilia, but it doesn't even do that.

No because he didnt want the focus of the cover to be of a "sexy" young girl. Its great literature, not smut after all

I like both Pale Fire and Pnin better to be honest, though I think Lolita is a masterpiece as well.

Haven't read Ada yet, that one's next. Invitation to a Beheading was a little underwhelming.
