Vladimir Nabokov’s controversial novel, “Lolita,” takes readers on a tumultuous journey through the unsettling relationship between a middle-aged man, and Dolores Haze, a young girl of twelve whom he obsessively refers to as Lolita. This haunting novel delves deep into the themes of desire, manipulation, and the destructive consequences of unchecked obsession. In addition to that, Humbert Humbert’s infatuation leads him down a treacherous path of deceit and emotional turmoil. Nabokov’s intricate storytelling and lyrical prose compel readers to confront the uncomfortable truths about human nature, morality, and the blurred lines between love and exploitation.

In 2021, Lisanne recommended “Tell Me Who I am” by Alex and Marcus Lewis and said…

“It is an interesting idea how a seemingly great solution – losing all your bad and traumatic memories – isn’t a solution to the problems at all. As this documentary implies, emotions cannot be controlled, and by hiding certain emotions or painful experiences they aren’t cleaned up at all.”

Reviews from Insiders:

Intriguing coming-of-age story

This is an intriguing coming-of-age story, that reads like a psychological thriller. I have to say that I loved the book more than the documentary, but the story is either way very upsetting yet beautiful. I admire their courage of putting a story that’s so deeply personal out there.
