Readathon April 2016: Hour 01

It’s now just after 2pm and I officially started reading at 12.30pm.

Lolita is a bit of a slog. I started off at 65% of the way through (I’m reading it on Kindle) and I am only at 79% now. I am not a huge fan of this book, although I appreciate the prose and at times I do get pulled into the story. It’s just that the content and characters make me feel uneasy and at times extremely disgusted. It’s frustrating to read about the vile Humbert Humbert and find yourself at times liking him. It’s the art of the biased and unreliable first person narration. He’s an awful human being though.

After this I think I will read a GN as it will be a nice change of pace.
