Just finished this, thanks for the recommendation /lit/. I guess part of the whole novel's purpose is to what degree you sympathize with the narrator, whether or not he's reliable, etc. I thought it was a great read, although I wasn't crazy about the ending. Discuss?

The whole novel was a commentary on propaganda and media spin.

I like the ending because I took it as the only happy ending is everyone dies I think it's meant to be kind of a guilty 'good.' than an 'aw that's sad'.

>>7600096
Care to elaborate on this? I'm interested.
>>7600106
Yeah, I see your point.
>>
>>7600088
How did you like that Thug Notes episode?
>>
>>7600115
I don't know about the specificity of media spin, but the general point about moral ambiguity/morality being arbitrary might be on point.

Humbert was a mentally ill pedo, that's pretty straight forward but he does has a lot of positive characteristics, his wit humor and smarts to name a couple. If he wasn't a pedo he'd be a great comic hero.

Nabokov was a linguist and so playing with meanings and multiple versions of meaning and "truth" was his game, not a huge leap at all for him to use that to fuck with our understanding of subjective morality and personal affections

Reading this book made me feel guilty because of the subject matter, so I like to view Lolita as a temptress complicit in Humbert's sin. That why my own Catholic guilt is absolved, because I was also seduced.
Shame about that ending. Does anyone else feel like Humbert and Lolita had compatible souls kept apart by age and lechery?

You sound like a mentally ill sinner who knew of the way of God but deliberately chose to follow Satan instead.

Fucking normie.
