    Blaming the Victim

    Lolita is written from a pedophile's point of view. It is not a pornographic novel in anyway but it also cannot be trusted as a true account of what happened between Humbert Humbert and Lolita. It's a novel about reading in between the lines and not taking the narrator's beautiful prose at face-value. Humbert tries to manipulate the reader into believing he is just a humble man who was seduced by a 12 year old girl. It is a wonderful novel but you really have to pay attention to the fine print and not fall into the idea that it's a love tragedy about a man who loses his life to an ideal. No. One precaution while reading this book: Do not blame the victim.

    love hurts

    'lolita' looks like a pedophile's dream novel. the basic plot of an older man falling in love with a prepubescent nymphette brings sour emotions, especially in this time of heightened awareness of pedophilia. however, these vile relations are not what the book is really about. Lolita is a girl who uses her lovely looks to get whatever she wants from her man, Humbert Humbert. he is in love and blind to all else. in this book, age does not matter. it is the story of a man who loses his life because he loves a woman in vain. sometimes, we all fall in love with the wrong person. but that doesn't make that love any less real.
