Listen very carefully she will say it only once...




Another sad day, Gordon Kaye, who played Rene in Allo Allo, has passed away.  

Lolita read along

I am behind blogging about this.  We made a made dash down south to look at and buy a caravan. It is all part of the master plan. *evil cackle*


OK, on to Lolita

Again I have loved the process of reading this book as it is taking me out of my comfort zone of Young Adult Fiction.  Obviously I am no longer a young adult, it just happens to be the type of book I can read easily.  Never in a million years would I have bought this book prior to the read along challenge.  I definitely did not think I would read a book about a peadophile.

To me it is written in the style of a narrator telling the story of another and painting a picture.  Quite a good pace and I felt quite a fast read.

Again I learnt new words, which sent me to the dictionary.

The book does make me query, if the author, knew someone who was a peadophile or he himself was the victim of one.  The book was written in 1955, it wasnt like today, where you can google everything and I doubt at the time he would of had a researcher.

A very interesting read, there were moments when I thought OMG!  Especially when I thought he was going to kill his 2nd wife.

The book is his confession, and is as if he is constantly talking to the jury.

8/10

Will I read it again?  Hmm that is a question.  I like to think I would, maybe in a few years.
