Unabridged Lolita released in Chnia


It appears that the first unabridged Lolita has been released in China. I had no idea that they had censored parts of the novel. Speaking of reading this controversial novel in other cultures, one that's on my list is Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. Has anyone read it?

Never read the latter book, though I'm intrigued. Do you know if the unabridged version of Lolita is more graphic, actually shows what went on between Humbert and Lolita? I know the movie was highly censored compared to the book, at least in dialogue, so I'd be curious to see what the original story was actually like.
