EDIT 9 jan 2016: Looks like I forgot to make a journal entry after reading it. And now found it again under a pile of books.. oops.. :p

Well, it has been a while but I remember liking the writing style, the satire and wit, it was funnier than I had expected it to be. Though the writing is very good, it also reads rather slow and I sometimes struggled to get through it. And there are lots of references in there I'm sure I didn't get. The story was also a kind of road trip through the US, which was interesting.
And even though I didn't entirely enjoy the book, Nabokov's wonderful writing style does make me want to try more of his work.
