This is one of those books that I have always wanted to read, but just never have. I remember one of my best friends in college raving about this as she read it. I have seen countless bloggers review it and rank it high, so I know it is something grand.
Of course the subject matter is slightly disturbing. The story is basically about a pedophile and his "daughter." But from what I do know, it isn't graphic in any way, so hopefully I don't get incredible creeped out by it. :)
In any case, I am looking forward to my first experience with Nabokov. I also have Pnin on my list, so I hope that this is a great experience and I fall in love with his writing.
