Top 20 best books to read during isolation

1Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov

Prohibited from entering the UK in its time of distribution, 1955, Vladimir Nabokov’s amazingly skilful and enduringly questionable work of fiction acquaints us with artistic teacher and self-admitted hebephile Humbert, the maybe inconsistent storyteller of the novel. He weds widow Charlotte Haze just to gain admittance to her little girl, 12-year-old Dolores, nicknamed Lo by her mom. Shrouding his maltreatment in the suggestive language of admired love doesn’t diminish Humbert’s wrongdoings.
