a portrayal of disastrous pedophilia relationship is an inspiration?

i mean, it's a good book, and a great warning about what not to do in life, but not in theme with the comm.

lol I should certainly hope pedophilia is not an inspiration to anyone! That much is obvious. However this is a work of fiction, the word play, vocabulary, satire were so masterfully done. But like much film and art it made the reader uncomfortable with subject matter. Art tends to push the envelope and I get it, it's art. I did not hate the words because of the fake story they were composed in. Nabokov is an amazing writer and as a word lover, I appreciated it and wanted to share.

That said, I collect quotes from every book I read. Daily gems seems to be the only semi active quote community in LJ, but looks like I need to try harder to find one that is active and not so jusgemental!
