REVIEW
 

Book Review: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Written by Jessica Schneider
Published January 11, 2009
 
Lolita. Itís been on my to read pile for a while now. It is a novel that, with reputation and all, stands as one of the Modern Libraryís 100 Best Novels of the Twentieth Century. Not that I appeal to authority, but given the bookís literary presence, in no way do I think Lolita qualifies as one of the 100 Best Novels of the Twentieth Century. Itís a good book certainly, but much of its reputation, I have to believe, is due to the controversial subject matter for its day, as well as critics cribbing from one another their overpraise for the book.
