I had heard magnificent things about this book, so at the library today I attempted to check it out. However, when heading to the line to check in/out, my mother suddenly decides to be inquisitive and look at what I was getting. 0.o (I am 15 years old, by the way, but I read on a higher level than most and enjoy that kind of a thing). So, I had 3 books: The Dubliners, by Joyce, The Moviegoers, by Percy, and of couse, Lolita. My mother recognizes it and flips out, and gasps and yanks it from my grasp and places it on the nearest shelf, then berates me for attempting to take out a 'pornographic book'. I explained to her that I was not reading it for that aspect of it, but as a literary work, but she wasn't hearing any of it. I was very embarrased. Anyway, I wanted to know if this book is worth sneaking. I've heard rave things about it, and Nabokov himself, is it worth the trouble?
