Highly recommended. Read the reviews (by hitting Reviews tab) and you'll see why (as what the reviewers say pretty much expresses my thoughts and feelings about this work).

I like Lolita a lot. That is the only reason why I read this. I thought this was a total waste of time, and a money grab. It is just a series of postcards and incomplete thoughts. It is one thing to invite an imaginative audience, but another to published unfinished works to get some cash from your dead Dad.
