Of all the vampire books I’ve read, this is the only one I’ve seen so far that’s written by a Canadian. (I’m not counting Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, because vampires only feature peripherally.) It was nice to read a story set in my own city, with landmarks and places that I recognized.
This was my book club read for March. I meant to start reading it while I was away on vacation, but all I managed to get through was the (rather lengthy) introduction. It took forever! There’s so much information in there, and lots of it isn’t really specifically relevant to Lolita. This is definitely an edition of the book where you should avoid the introduction unless you’ve already read it (the novel) at least once – otherwise it tells you too much and goes into far too much detail for you to enjoy it properly.
