With scholar, aesthetician and questionable protagonist Humbert Humbert as your guide, prepare to be taken on a journey through your own morality as you are swayed into supporting his obsession for his pre-teen love Dolores. As gripping as it is controversial, Lolita still manages to divide readers 70 years later. - Samuel (QBD)

Lolita
Sparking controversy with its release in 1955, Nakabov's novel quickly attained a classic status, becoming one of the most well-known and certainly most controversial examples of 20th Century literature. It has been adapted many times for the stage, for films, opera, Broadway musicals and ballet. Widely considered his best work, this book is a must read for anyone who is a fan of the classic genre.
