Not the easiest read to get through, but undoubtedly rewarding for those who persevere. It is first and foremost about the philosopher Krug's love for his son, and the bizarre tyrannical world in which they are trapped. Nabokov's use of language evokes conflicting emotions from the reader, making the novel both hysterical and heartbreaking. There are elements of the absurd throughout, but the emotions the novel elicits are very real.
