I finished a book after a really long time. A difficult book, at that.

Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokv.

The theme is a little creepy. The book is full of many innuendos. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if I was reading too much into the words, or there really¬†was all that double meaning.

Verdict: Despite the theme that often sent shivers down my spine, I enjoyed the wordplay, the rambling narrative and the subjective descriptions like you were inside the narrator’s head. Indeed, the innuendos and references to sexual encounters are what keep you reading through the sometimes overly descriptive prose.

I want to read more books now.

Meanwhile, many unread blog posts pile up in my inbox. Fear not, I’ll get to them one of these days.
