Nothing about Lolita suggests that the pedophilic relationship is OK, good or healthy. Humbert is a man with serious emotional issues who does something very bad and then tries to rationalize his actions as he slips deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole... At least that's what I remember thinking the last time I read it, when I was 16--a perfectly appropriate age to read Nabokov, IMO.

So French is your first language, then?
