It is a story of obsession and often painful.

If you want to read it to get off, you'd be very disappointed. The only nearly erotic part of it is when he describes his explorations with a 14-year-old [IIRC] when he was the same age. He's disappointed and she dies [disease, not him] and that breaks his heart.

But even in that Nabokov puts in barely-masked satire. The girl's name is Annabelle Leigh. And she lived by the sea. Get it?
