Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov, Craig Raine Exquisite language--especially as read by Jeremy Irons.

Lush, decadent, voluptuous. And disgusting.

I simply loved the litany of gray vehicles following, maybe.

I felt the "giving crunch of the damp gravel."

"the juicy tidbit I had sucked out at last from a hollow tooth"--ugh.

I have to give 5 stars in spite of the drag of the middle of the book; what would be tedious description from any other author is enthralling.
