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