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?
Without a doubt, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I had to read this for three separate college classes in one semester during a snowy, dark and cold month. I usually can find some redeeming qualities about most books I read, but this one I really didn't like. It was more depressing than the weather.
