Lolita- A lavishly witty dark comedy.

Lolita is a highly amusing tongue in cheek story of Humbert Humbert an English professor, who inconveniently still idolises his first childhood sweet heart, despite his pressing adult age.

It is surprisingly hard to dislike the hopeless villainous character of Humbert despite his twisted intentions to bring little Lolita into his clutches, as he becomes as much of a victim of his in... read more

Lolita is a strange beast of a book. The conflicting emotions that ran through my mind make it impossible to place it any specific genre of novel. Mysteries are supposed to surprise the reader, comedies are supposed to delight the reader, dramas are supposed to move the reader and thrillers are supposed to get their pulse racing. Where does that put Lolita? It manages to move, disgust and make me ... read more

Description: Amazon.com Review Despite its lascivious reputation, the pleasures of Lolita are as much intellectual as erogenous. It is a love story with the power to raise both chuckles and eyebrows.

"The dangers of lust for underage beauty and girls coming-of-age sexually aroused by older men is explored in one of the most notoriously known books of all time. The worst of it all? It is gripping and absolutely breathtaking to read at the same time. It is hard to not feel the frustration and intensity of the narrator's obsession. The book that created a sub-genre all on it's own in porn too if one want to be honest. "
