Out of the books you have read, what has been either the most difficult to finish because of heavy amount of substance, as well as developed comprehension skills?
What has been the most difficult to finish from ideological-isolating way, scary, or 'dangerous' way?

Example would be, maybe, Finnegan's Wake, from a comprehension basis, and Mein Kampf in a 'dangerous' way.

This is just an example, but I'm looking for new reading material that pushes boundaries, whether in an intellectual or transgressive way, or both.

Pop up books. I mean, those things are scary as Hell. They're all like "BOO! Look, I'm a Giraffisuss.". And don't even get me STARTED on those Monkey's, man. They're loud and bad for people whose Central Nervous Systems are in a state of hyperexcitability. Ooh Eee Ooh Ahh Ahh! FUCK.THAT.SHIT. - And anything written by an introverted Woman. Because they hardly put out anything good if at all. And if they do, it's usually some sort of retarded ass, man hating, domi-natrix emasculation of males soft-core-p(o)r-n-er-ot-ica. Other than that, I'd say YOU'RE OWN books that you own at your house. They're probably coated/encrusted with cum and/or blood and tears. Possibly both. It's a bio-hazard on your bookshelves.

Just like your whole "I'm leaving the Website" or "I'm truly, honestly being sincere and trying to make connections even if I'm intentionally fucking with People" and yet continue to still.......make threads, comments, and Private Message People such as myself? Oh, and also. My comment was pretty damn funny! Laugh, CLOWN! LAUGH! LOL

Motherfucker. You don't even want to KNOW what kind of nets that I use. Plus. My comment was funny. It was also on topic and about BOOKS. So, please give it the appropriate amount of laughter that it very well deserves.

I was fucking talking about BOOKS. You asked for it. You made the thread. And yes, pop up books are scary AS.FUCK. And I'm not even joking/kidding. I was ALSO making fun of "50 Shades of Gray" which was mediocre at best and dangerous for Women who want to be edgy but then later find out that their the victims of some made up "Rape" or something for trying to live out that book in their sexual fantasies/escapades/bedventures/add-me-to-the-list-of-super-cool-nobody-reluctant porn-star-types of People.

I like this topic!

Did you ever read Crime and Punishment by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky?!

Well, both of these threads have changed topics.

The ironic part is that I planned he would do come into these threads following ego attack, and I stirred the pot encouraging it, because of my last messages to him, I didn't reply when he wrote a lovey message to me. And, I believe this to be the cause of the Subject's current disposition.

Anything by James Patterson!

Just kidding. Fuck James Patterson. With an ice pick.

Don Quixote by Cervantes is challenging in that sense that, when it was published in the early seventeenth century, it challenged the idea of what a book could be. If you want something newer, read a novel by Eco, Pamuk, or Rushdie.

Thanks for the suggestions!

My knowledge of Don Quixote is actually pretty little, so I have to insight into what it would be like reading it. To me, it just seems like a book hailed as a classic, and it probably very long. Maybe I'm entirely wrong. But, I kind of lump it into "that" category, like Moby Dick or something.

With that being said, I should probably read it someday just for the hell of it.

currently I'm reading a book called "The Secret Code" which goes into a lot of detail about the Golden Ratio (also referred to as The Golden Mean, the Golden Division, etc.). A lot of it is mathematical and since I'm lacking in math skills, some of it just goes straight over my head. But it's so fascinating I can't stop reading. The complexity of nature never ceases to amaze me and I love reading about it.

Interesting. BTW Shangs, the first post on this thread had me in stitches of laughter. I would advocate the Age of Manipulation. A lot of classic Russian Literature. The doors of perception I have but yet have to wrap my head around.

The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot or however his name is spelt is easy reading but I do commend it.
Of course Nietzsche and Satre.

Being and Time by Heidegger too.

Soft Machine by William S. Burroughs. I remember reading it a few years ago and it is definitely a challenging work, mostly because of the word collage (cut up) technique he uses. There seems to be no bigger story, just different parts that have to be assembled into one somehow. I am planning to read it again soon and see how I find it today.
Another one that I am planning to read again is Hidden Faces by Salvador Dali. I read it in high school and found it extremely boring and pretentious back then.

Like someone before mentioned, Crime and Punishment is a tough one. Although I have loved the 2/3 of the book I have read so far, it is just a tiring book to read! I have been on and off with that book for two years. It is excellent so far, but it is pretty dense because you are following a character who is mentally unstable. There is a lot of extra dialogue that makes it hard to follow the plot. But in a way, I really like that. It kind of puts you into the situation and makes you feel confusion and frustration, just like the main character feels.
