  • I would have to say War and Peace just because of the sheer number of characters in the book... it's hard to remember them all O.o The language is not particularly difficult, but I found it a hard book to "hold" in my brain.
  • "The satanic verses" by Salman Rushdie. Not so much because of the subject but the way it is written. It is very dense and complex, but I did finish it and enjoyed it.
  • nothing :F
  • My dad's engineering books, or instruction manuals for required assembly.
  • The "God" Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I think that's his name at least....
  • First, I would say Tale of Two Cities. The language was difficult to follow with the old English, and the story was boring. Second, some of the questions on AB are brutal to try and decipher.
  • The Vampyre by John William Polidori. It was EXTREMELY hard to read because of the strange form of English used back then, nothing seemed to flow, and I'm not the best in English, especially not at the time I was reading it. Edgar Allen Poe's The Murder on Rue Morgue was also a complicated read. The way he had of describing complicated things in a seventy million word sentence was slightly frustrating, but it was a very good story indeed.
  • '
  • Principles of Physical Cosmology
  • Almost anything by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd, was hard A lot of Russian Literature I find enjoyable but very heavy going.
  • the count of monte cristo by alexandre dumas is a pretty hard read,but well worth the effort.
  • "Ulysses" by James Joyce..It is brilliantly complex. Second to that would be William Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury."
  • The Bible
  • 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenence.' Just what the h#ll is he talking about?
  • The Count of Monte Cristo is probably the hardest book I've read. No wait... it was Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. That guy is totally out of his mind. Plus there were like 100-some pages of endnotes that kept totally throwing me off the momentum of the story.
  • I was in College and could just barely read regular English when I had to read Moby Dick in the original form. Very hard to read and on every sentence there were several of those big words you only find in those colossal dictionaries you see at the Reference Section at some Libraries.....
  • House of the Seven Gables by Nataniel Hawthorne bored me so much that I used it for months to cure my insomnia.I still haven't read past the first chapter-a true testament to it's powers as a sleep aid.
  • I've read Dante's Inferno, 12th century Italian literature. I read the english translated version, but it was still very difficult, almost poem form. had to read only a few pages at a time. damn good book though, going to try it again sometime.
  • Many of the philosophers writings are difficult most likely because it's really not light reading.
