Say Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic advertising executive and Lolita was a photographer's assistant and somehow they met in Bright Lights Big City. He's blinded by love; she by ambition. Purporting to be an autobiography, this book is honest, hilarious and heartrending, but above all a very real account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.

Honestly, the book's narrative style isn't my cup of tea, but I couldn't stop reading. It is pretentious but sympathetic, and off-putting but engaging. Holden Caulfield is an alcoholic who is considered pretty successful in the realms of art-directing and hurting women. He blatantly displays his act of manipulation and expressed his joy in seeing his girlfriend angry. Weird dude. But, until he meets a girl he completely surrenders himself too, he is vulnerable and lost. He is debated between trusting and loving. The ending doesn't turn out good, but there is a sequel - which I'm definitely checking out.

A quick, but brutal read.

"They say the sea is actually black and that it merely reflects the blue sky above. So it was me. I allowed you to admire yourself in my eyes. I provided a service. I listened and listened and listened. You stored yourself in me."

"I liked hurting girls.
Mentally not physically, I never hit a girl in my life. Well once, But that was a mistake. I'll tell you about it later. The thing is, I got off on it. I really enjoyed it."
