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 hardest books I’ve read are ones that I haven’t yet finished. There are three: Don Quixote, Les Misérables, and Anna Karenina. (Sense a theme here?) I was not assigned any of these three for school, but was intrigued by them and chose to take them on. I still own them all, and I will finish them as they are like a red flag being waved in front of my face.
They are three good ones.
Too bad you hit a bump with Anna Karenina . . . it’s one of my all-time favorite books, have blogged about it. Is it possible that you picked up a bad translation? Anyway, hope you do try it again sometime!
