Book Review: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

This has been on my reading list for a long time. The language was exemplary, smooth and lyrical. Masterful stuff. That said, I did find the material smutty; not bad smut; literary smut; tasteful smut; but, smut nevertheless. As it deals with a bold theme, there was a sense of grimness pervading throughout the book; a sense that no matter what, it was not going to end well. That perhaps does not make it an easy read.
