Booking Through Thursday
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?
For some reason I really struggled with Middlemarch by George Eliot. I've read many of her books and had no problems, but that particular one posed more than one challene. I think the biggest problem is that i found myself bored throughout most of it, so I'd lose focus, therefore losing the plot. I started it twice, with equally unsatisfying results. Since I read it for pleasure, not for school, I didn't obsess too much about it.
