In a Berlin rooming house filled with an assortment of serio-comic Russian émigrés, Lev Ganin, a vigorous young officer poised between his past and his future, relives his first love affair. His memories of Mary are suffused with the freshness of youth and the idyllic ambience of pre-revolutionary Russia. In stark contrast is the decidedly unappealing boarder living in the room next to Ganin’s, who, he discovers, is Mary’s husband, temporarily separated from her by the Revolution but expecting her imminent arrival from Russia. “Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically.” — John Updike Download and start listening now!

    " Obviously Nabokov's writing is extraordinary, but the climax is disappointing, especially after the long lead up to it. "

    " Actually enjoyed this more than Lolita. Nabokov's first novel is compact but the dose is satisfying. The ending is a true shock. It all leads up to that. "

    " Borrowed from South Pasadena library but I don't remember much of the plot. "

    " Not bad for his first novel. I wish he'd written more short works. I'm not averse to longer books, as I write this I'm reading one short book, one long book, and one ridiculously long book, but I think Nabokov works better with less pages. Just my opinion. "
