Vladimir Nabokov - Pale fire

I first read this novel two years ago. While certainly appreciating it back then it struck me on more levels when reading it now, anno 2007. The many subtle references and puns can only be followed upon rereading; something Nabokov must have purposely designed. Pale Fire is one of the more difficult novels I've ever read, but if you adhere to someone's famous motto - stay the course - you'll find some nice treasures at the end of the rainbow. Especially recommended for readers interested in Postmodern fiction, cybertext and literary criticism.
