LOlLITA

This was a great book. I gave it 4 stars because is was somewhere between good and excellent. It was a little hard to follow at times because some of the words were a little over my head, Keep a dictionary handy.

Classic

Deep insights into the mind of a pedophile.
No wonder we never could find it when we were young.

You will fall in love with this book after the first chapter. Really after the first sentence, if you're like me. Wonderful read, fantastical subject, poetic, smooth. My favorite book of all time.
