Lolita

4.4/5

Awe and exhiliration–along with heartbreak and mordant wit–abound in Lolita, Nabokov’s most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert’s obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. 

“It was love at first sight, at last sight, at ever and ever sight.”

Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita
