it was amazing

I am completely and utterly fascinated with each and every modern retelling of Nabokov's Lolita, and while this could read as a cheap ripoff, I prefer to see it as an enjoyable little spinoff. This version focuses on Humbert, called Richard here, as a villain without any underlying romanticism. Tribute is even paid to Nabokov's butterfly interest, as Molly shares the same passion in her role here. This isn't a serious hard-core book by any means, but is still a great read for any fans of Lolita, as long as you don't expect too much.
