Humbert Humbert - scholar, aesthete and romantic - has fallen completely and utterly in love with Lolita Haze, his landlady's gum-snapping, silky skinned twelve-year-old daughter. Reluctantly agreeing to marry Mrs Haze just to be close to Lolita, Humbert suffers greatly in the pursuit of romance; but when Lo herself starts looking for attention elsewhere, he will carry her off on a desperate cross-country misadventure, all in the name of Love. Hilarious, flamboyant, heart-breaking and full of ingenious word play, "Lolita" is an immaculate, unforgettable masterpiece of obsession, delusion and lust.

“My favourite novel”

Lolita is haunting, delicate and charming, and all the more unnerving for being these things, considering that the narrator is a deranged child-molester. Lolita stays in the mind long after one has put it down, mainly... More

“Questions your morals”

As an English Student, this book has been debated about greatly, and so I had to read it. It is a very clever narrative, as you start off, rightly so, thinking that this man is purely just a pedophile but by the end... More
