What's your favorite Nabokov book?
I've already Lolita and was wondering what else is good by him and why? Ada seems interesting, as does Pale Fire. Which one is your favorite?

Ada is his masterpiece. Pale Fire is indeed very interesting, but it is more like a puzzle for the reader.

Lolita, 50th Anniversary Edition by Vladimir Nabokov is narrated by middle-aged Humbert Humbert. He's a pedophile--although he's tried denying it, tried disguising it, and tried channeling his baser instincts, but as luck would have it, Humbert finds himself as the lodger at the home of a buxom, lonely widow, Charlotte Haze and 12-year-old daughter, Lolita. Humbert doesn't particularly even like Lolita--he actually finds her rather dull, but she becomes a vessel for the fantasies left by Humbert's unfulfilled first love affair.
