Read in February, 2009

I love Vladimir Nabokov's writing. His command of language always astounds me. That said, I had a hard time with this book. Perhaps my brain power isn't what it used to be, but I feel like I would need to take a university course to understand what this was all about. I got bored. I skimmed the last 120 or so pages and really didn't care what happened at the end. Given the other rave reviews, I feel like I must have missed something, lots of things. Oh well. I tried. I won't try again.
