Book about Cousins

I don't know if anyone has already made a recommendation about this book: ADA, or ARDOR by Vladimir Navokov. I just found it in a review and thought that it was interesting. Mind you, I haven't read it yet but let's all find out what it is all about. :)

Don?t get me wrong, I love Lolita ? it?s an absolutely perfect novel. But Ada, or Ardor is so much more complex. Amidst the romance plot of Van Veen and his cousin Ada is a larger theme on the nature of time ? and how it can change everything and nothing. -- http://www.buzzfeed.com/erinlarosa/books-that-will-actually-change-your-life

looked it up on amazon... apparently the two characters fall in love as teenagers, thinking they are cousins, but soon learn that they aren't cousins at all.... but that they are actually half-siblings. it's a sci-fi novel.

no, and i'm pretty sure they never will. she's a pretty obscure writer. she's only published four books, and i think the other three are westerns. i read one of them, it was very good, too. of course, i do have my favorite for obvious reasons :)

That's the only thing with a lot of books, they don't make movies from them. Just seems like it could be a good/interesting movie to watch if they made one other than just the book itself  :smiley:
