Sarah Weinman researched the 1948 kidnapping of Sally Horner and how it influenced Vladimir Nabokov's writing of his novel Lolita. Most of the time I read fiction, and only occasionally something nonfiction if it's something that catches my eye. I found this book interesting, I liked how the author just brought more to the story. I recently read a fictional account of Sally Horner and Lolita, so reading nonfiction and reading more about both was interesting. I liked how the author wrote more details about Sally Horner, the author Vladimir Nabokov and his writing process of Lolita, and then just observations about the book Lolita itself.
