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?
I just finished the world's hardest/most challenging book EVER! It's called Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. It took me almost a year to read it. Almost every page was pointless and dry...I'll review it in-depth later. Let's just say I feel good in saying that I've read Vanity Fair, but that's about all I got from the whole ordeal (and, yes, it was an ordeal). I read it by choice, it was the most challenging book I've ever read, ever...in the end it felt like an obligation. I felt hollow and weary for days after reading it. Ick.
