I am currently reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and it is my first time reading it. So far I agree with the hype that it is quite beautifully written. I've only seen the Jeremy Irons adaptation but I noticed that the film gave a more romanticized view of Humbert and Lolita. Of course it was still totally sketchy but I was surprised at what a disgustinggg individual he is in the book. Also licking someone's eyeball seems very unsanitary imo.
I also have checked out from the library:
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka - I just finished a great book by Kobo Abe who is supposed to be the Japanese Kafka so I decided to check out the ~original~
The Hot Zone by Richard Preston
& The Places In Between by Rory Stewart - hortensio or someone suggested this to ke^7 forever ago but I am always watching.
