Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's BTT asks . . . 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?

The most challenging book I've read to date is "Love in the Time of Cholera" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It took me a while to get into the rhythm of the writing and, perhaps because it is a translated work, it was a bit more difficult to read. It was worth it though. I'm glad I can say I read such an esteemed novel.


  1. Oh, Love in the Time of Cholera is on my wishlist! I hope it's worth it :)

  3. Don't know this one but glad it was worth it. Translated books sometimes are hard to relate to or mesh with...
