   A rad book
This book was given to me by my friend. She's pretty rad for doing that. It is a wonderful book so far. I believe it's thebomb. com. "Excuse me!"

   An usual book for sure
The book is not boring because Nabokov has good use of English. This isn't the kind of book that I prefer to read, but I picked up this after getting recommendations. I like Russian authors who can give insight into the soul and world of the human being. It has been quoted as saying that authors such as Golgol and Chekhov are.

   great read
It grows on you after you read a few of the notes, which have nothing and at the same time everything to do with the poem, and begin to reveal the character of the poet and the commentator. The moment of realization was fun for me.

   A Nabokov tour de force
Pale Fire is a good book by Nabokov, but I don't think it is my favourite. Some people get seven stars. Pnin was paraphrased as: The Gift. His teaching on Russian and Western Literature in two volumes is priceless.

   anything with a vocabulary.
Word look up is not adequate. It is difficult to get back to the text from a purchased dictionary. The book is alright so far, but the drawbacks of the e-reader are getting more annoying. It is possible that Amazon should focus more on improving the product for actual reading than on improving internet access and wider screen. I could say that the really good thing was that I could get a definition for a word on the internet. It was for God's sake. Who thinks that a website is a substitute for a dictionary?

   A fun puzzle by one of the great 20th century authors
This was a fantastic read, and I got to learn about Nabokov for the first time. The eloquent prose, but also the intricate, multi- layers of story was the subject of the article. If you want to avoid any confusion, take a cue from this quote, the book has analyzed for more than 30 years.

   Really intriguing
In the movie Blade Runner 2049, steams are interwoven, but much more. The book is a very complex and subtle political conspiracy.
