Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

One of Nabokovs masterpieces; a complex love story troubled by incest. But there's more; it is also a fairy tale, epic, philosophical treatise on the nature of time, parody of the history of the novel and erotic catalogue.


Review:

"A great work of art, a necessary book, radiant and rapturous, affirming the power of love and imagination."

Alfred Kazin

Review:

"The time of the novel is years out of kilter with history. The setting is not even this world but its fragmented mirror image, a place called Antiterra....This upside-down, inside-out structure is simple compared with the fine mesh of wordplay....Eventually, someone will root [its secrets] out and doubtless prove, as C.B. Proffer has done in his 'Keys to Lolita', that every last anagram fits into a devilishly clever pattern, but even without such a guide 'Ada' can be reveled in for its archly magnificent prose....[Nabokov] has found an entirely new way of putting a novel together and as original a way of dealing with duration in fiction as Proust did. On the other hand, there has never been a more cerebrally constructed, less emotionally involving book than this geometric study of lifelong illicit passion. But that irony was also intended."

New York Times Book Review
