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?
That would have to be “Great Expectations.” I had to read it in class back in 9th grade and it was long, tedious, and agrevating. Of course, I think most of the problem came for the fact we had to read out loud and everyone read a piece.
I don’t even enjoy listening to books on tape or CD so this, to me, was murder, lol. Add in the fact that not everyone was the best at reading in front of a class… Yeah.
Mind you, one I finally got a chance to sit down and read it all on my own I found out that I actually liked the book. I just wished that the reading aloud part was skipped, no matter why the teacher thought it a good idea.
