The Rest Is Rust And Stardust

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns." - Vladimir Nabokov (Lolita)

I'm reading the book Lolita. It's the most beautiful book I've ever read.

Isn't it odd how, in reading Lolita, you realise the guy is actually a pedophile. But, the way it is written makes you feel sorry for and like him, whereas you detest Dolores herself!

I read Lolita over the summer. Such a way with words that author has. I have mixed feelings on the book, but can appreciate how talented the writer is. Tell us what you think of it when you're all done. Enjoy! x

These pictures are so incredibly pretty. & I've heard of that book before, so I'm thinking I really need to check it out and add it to my reading list. ♥

Bryn said...

I began to read Lolita but for some reason could not get through the first few pages, it kinda creeped me out... but I'm going to give it a second chance. (: These shots are so pretty.. I'm a huge fan of chandeliers.
