This is an absolutely amazing piece of work. In 1962, when I first read it as a snot-nosed college student, I thought the translator had done a terrific job translating from Russian into English. It wasn't until 30 years later that I learned Vladimir Nabokov had written it in English, his second language.
He plays a massive practical joke on the reader. While he shocks us with the utter depravity of Humbert's lusts, he seduces us, as surely as Lolita does poor Humbert, into a state of near sympathy - certainly empathy - with Humbert's obsessions and consummations. Go ahead, read this and see if you, too, don't find yourself understanding Humbert, reveling in his passionate despair and guilty carnality.
