Post Lolita
Hello Poettes:

"Lolita" is one of my favorite books, not for the subject matter, but for how it was written. Lolita is a great example of how characters will lie to sway you if they are retelling their story. HH was very persuasive, egotistical and smart (and funny, how could it be funny, but it was) and I do feel very depraved for sympathising with him (in the beginning), but are we not swayed by egotistical, smart and beautiful people?, who turn out to be monsters, like Dorian Gray! Another, great example, not such a great book, is "The Good Mother", Sue Miller I believe. Actually, I would put that one up there as physcological horror too, for the subject matter and readability, but it's the same premise.
