Reading "Lolita" was like listening to progressive metal
Technically impressive but not particularly enjoyable and after awhile it just started to bore me. I probably gave up too soon but as I've said, I have very little patience for books that don't grab me. And while I could understand the appeal of Nabokov's writing, the actual content and pacing turned me off. When I stopped reading, it had basically just been page after page of the narrator describing sexual tension between himself and the titular bony little brat.
