Aroused but not satisfied

Posted on: July 20, 2011

LolitaLolita by Vladimir Nabokov
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Why do I give this only three stars? It’s a work of genius, right?

For my taste, Vlad is simply too vain. I don’t like a man who is always congratulating himself on his technique.

I like how you write that you don’t like someone who keeps congratulating on technique. That’s how literary fiction can come across to me, too. And yet, some writers truly have a sincere style that way. There’s one American writer I can think of who fits that mold but I won’t say his name. He does deserve his success.

Thanks for the comment, DD. Now you have got me guessing. I love guessing games. Is it Jonathan Franzen?

Do you have something to get off your chest?
