What’s the hardest/most challenging book you’ve ever read? Was it worth the effort? Did you read it by choice or was it an assignment/obligation?
The most challenging book I’ve ever read has to be The Sound and the Fury. I already mentioned it in a previous post – it was an assignment for my American Literature class last year so I had to read it but I didn’t manage to connect with the story at all. So much so that I gave it up after about 50 pages. (which I almost never do)
The most challenging book I actually did finish was The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I had to read it for Brit Lit class two years ago, but it was a complete nightmare. I thought I’d never finish it!
