After finishing this book I realized I didn't really care that I had read it. As always Nabokov really nailed some of the sentences.

One particular bit that pleased me:

"It is amazing to catch another's room by surprise. The furniture froze in amazement when I switched on the light. Somebody had left a letter on the table; the empty envelope lay there like an old useless mother, and the little sheet of note paper seemed to be sitting up like a robust babe."

I will likely forget this books plot entirely in the next 24 hours...
