Opinion

From Library Staff

Sometimes this story of Humbert Humbert and his enslavement of a very young girl is torture to listen too, but it's often hugely pleasurable and suddenly funny. Jeremy Irons, who played Humbert in the movie, is the voice actor, and he's splendid. Also available on CD.

Of course, the first time this sad and twisted love story should probably be read on the page but what a joy to listen to Jeremy Irons tell the story.

Of course, the first time this sad and twisted love story should probably be read on the page, or on an e-reader, but let me just tell you, this audio book is read by Jeremy Irons.

A beautiful and genuinely original novel of true unabashed love (lust?). The unreliable narrator strings you along on a terribly intoxicating journey through the mind of pedophile.

It is semi- dangerous to listen to this, because Jeremy Irons will make you believe every single word of Humbert Humbert.
