Ada, or Ardor

Curator Reviews

Lily Cole

Nabokov’s indulgent, clever use of language reaches its height in this ambitious and wild love story. I have read this book multiple times, and intend to read it many times again. Even recalling the novel makes me smile inside, as my imagination moves to the familiar spaces in my mind that were built by this book. As in Lolita, Nabokov enchants us with a world which is morally questionable - and by enticing us into that world, perhaps provokes us to diffuse hard ideas of right and wrong.
