  1. One of the things I like most about Nabokov s novels is the structure, and this one has a particularly interesting structure.At the beginning of chapter nine which is roughly half way through the book, two new characters appear out of nowhere, two young Berliners who are trying to return home after a hard night on the town Both of them continued farther along the deserted night street, which alternately rose up smoothly to the stars and then sloped down again.That deserted night street could be [...]


  2. The combination of Chess and Nabokov seemed to me a match made in heaven, a big fan of both, this was just too tempting to turn down, even though I knew it would take something pretty remarkable to reach the heights of either Pale Fire or Lolita , I still felt like reading what is one of his earlier Russian novels his third written in 1930 before he embarked on his American odyssey The Luzhin Defence is a book that does features chess, but doesn t delve too deeply into the actual playing of the [...]


  3. It s Never Too Late for a Happy ChildhoodA boy who doesn t want to grow up a mother who loses interest in him as he does a father who writes an idealised version of the boy s life in which he doesn t and an agent who values only his client s youthfulness clearly not the best conditions for psychic maturation but hardly signs of abuse.The boy finds his solace and calling in the game of chess everything apart from chess was an enchanting dream Real life, chess life, was orderly, clear cut, and ric [...]


  4. If you are a chessplayer, like me, you simply have to read this book No one else has even come close to describing chess obsession from the inside The style is, needless to say, impeccable.



  5. Let s start if you re willing Vladimir Nabokov, The Luzhin DefenseG.K Chesterton once famously quipped in his book Orthodoxy that Imagination does not breed insanity Exactly what does breed insanity is reason Poets do not go mad but chess players do Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers but creative artists very seldom Vladimir Nabokov s th rd novel about a lonely chess grandmaster reminds me ofFranz Kafka and a little bit of Melville s Bartleby, the Scrivener While this isn t my favorite Nabokov [...]


  6. Ah Nabokov, your words are like the warm familiar embrace of an ex lover who knows just what I like except without all the self disgust the next day.


  7. We find in The Luzhin Defense many of Nabokov s playful tropes madness monomania, solipsism , resistance to meaning particular jabs at the Viennese delegation , genius outcast from society It is apparent that his is an early work of the master, though a masterful work still Luzhin is a remote but somehow lovable obsessive Our affection for him has true potential, perhaps a potential unusual for the typical Nabokovian protagonist But that affection is abated by our narrative distance from Luzhin [...]



  8. A young boy, a loner, indifferent to everything, discovers chess Ensnared by this insanely addictive game, he becomes even indifferent to everything except chess He grows up, becomes a champion, many of his games considered immortals In a championship game against the equally brilliant Italian Grandmaster Turati, upon adjourning a very difficult position, he suffers a breakdown He survives, but the doctors opine that further chess might be fatal to him Enough of the plot I have been looking for [...]


  9. Not as impressive as Lolita, but still a solid read Mostly, I was bored and confused with the direction of the plot Well, almost non existent plot Luzhin is supposed to be compelling and intriguing, but he s non of the above Also, the ending isn t even nearly satisfying and I feel like I m left hanging This is a story about an obsessed chess player who doesn t distinguish reality from imagination Basically, the plot deals with the story of a genius, whose perception of life entwines with chess s [...]


  10. Hands up I read some of this at bullet train speed because I had to return it to the library Yes, I could have withdrawn it again, but there were only fifty odd pages left and some new Foster Wallace was in that set my hands a twitchin and my brain a spinnin.So I didn t let the sumptuous prose slowly unfold, I didn t delicately caress his sentences with the same narcissistic mania the author bestowed upon his own works But there wasn t much sumptuousness here, anyway His third novel is a straig [...]


  11. Over the last few weeks I ve read The Luzhin Defense, followed by Bluebeard and then Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Originally I was going to write some stuff here about the central characters and compare them with the original Outsider I was going to say things like this Maybe it is a contradiction in terms, to put 3 books about outsiders in the same review, but I can t stop myself.We have here a chess player, a doctor who might or might not have murdered a wife and a chickenhead They all [...]



  12. Dalla parte di Lu in E accorgersi all improvviso, con un sorriso che gela sulla labbra, rabbrividendo, che la vita tutta una iterazione combinatoria di mosse , osservare, con vaga ammirazione e con vago orrore con quanta paurosa raffinatezza, con quanta flessibilit , mossa dopo mossa, si fossero ripetute nel tempo le immagini della sua infanzia casa di campagna, citt , scuola, zia pietroburghese , in un continuo cercare di giocare e rigiocare a memoria la partita della propria vita, un inseguime [...]


  13. If Nabokov s second novel reminded me of one of my favorite writers Marcel Proust his third, The Luzhin Defense, brings to mind another Virginia Woolf Given that The Luzhin Defense concerns the gradual mental disintegration of a Russian chess grandmaster, and given that Nabokov had apparently not yet read Woolf when he did, in 1933, he claimed a low opinion of her work , its Woolfian overtones are a bit surprising But consider this passage, in which the now middle aged Luzhin remembers how his a [...]


  14. After reading Lolita, I knew that I d need another book to feed my new addiction to Nabokov Something I could read over and over Something with his deliciously clever writing, minus the pedophilia I had high hopes for The Defense and I enjoyed the book, but didn t quite find what I was looking for I m not sure if some of his writing genius was lost in translation, it was written in Russian then translated to English, or if it was simply that in the 25 years spanning the works he became a better [...]



  15. Primarily I decided to read The Luzhin Defense as Vladimir Nabokov s sixth novel after Pnin, King, Queen, Knave, Lolita, Laughter in the Dark and Transparent Things for two reasons, 1 I d like to read one of his novels and compare it to his Lolita, and 2 I liked its reader friendly fonts which I found relaxing and easier to read than some of those published by Penguin or other English paperback publishing companies in general However, a bit disappointed by its plot and something like stream of [...]




  16. Un Nabokov da altissimi livelliRimuginavo da qualche giorno cosa mi ricordasse non dico nella trama, ma nelle atmosfere cerebrali Visioni, che ho appena finito di leggere Ecco, finalmente si accesa la lampadina L ossessione per la perfezione estetica non forse una forma d arte il gioco degli scacchi , la sublimazione della mente fuori dalla corporeit , l inadeguatezza della genialit al mondo della materia e anche il finale ha lo stesso tono apocalittico, il suo stesso anelito per la ricerca mett [...]


  17. Nearly five stars, nearlyThose who know any obsessively compulsive persons will really appreciate the effort Nabokov went into for this When you become so engrossed in your fixation that you begin to question what is reality Of course I would never use this as a guide to dealing with loved ones who have OCD or whatever, but it was insightful into another aspect of the mind of the human I have addictive tendencies, so perhaps I am lucky I never got into any activities like chess seriously Of cour [...]








  18. A story of an ill fated chess genius This quote by Oscar Levant pretty much sums it up There s a fine line between genius and insanity I have erased this line.
