A book which startled people to such an extent that many countries took to ban its publication immediately. Yes, it is none other than Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. A story of a writer Humbert Humbert who moves to America and comes across a young lass, Lolita(pronouned as LU-Lee-TA not LO-Lee-TA). He is drawn to her physically and will go to any extent to possess her and keep her to himself.

Would Lolita, a young girl, give herself to an old man who is of her father's age?

Would Humbert be successful in his crime to destroy the life of a child?

What is the reason behind's Humbert's paedophilic nature?

It's a book written from the perspective of a paedophile who is aware of his crime and not a victimised individual. Many believe it was originally written in Russian but it is not true as Nabokov had written this book in English. If one is familiar with French, it might be useful as a lot of french phrases have been used in the penmanship. However, it wouldn't be a problem for people who aren't aware of the french language as you'll understand what he is trying to narrate( I do not know french, it wasn't very problematic). Honestly, I liked Part 1 of the novel, Part 2 will bore you as it is crammed with unnecessary descriptions without slightest movement in the story.
