I'm giving up on Ada and/or Ardor. I made it through 181 pages and nothing at all has happened other than a lot of barely-pubescent sibling/cousin sex. I am pretty sure that's what the whole book is about, except that it's also about an alternate universe somehow. It's well-written in the typical Nabokovian fashion, with clever puns and wordplay, but it's hard to get into all that incest stuff.

I gave it a shot. (The book, not incest.)
