Roger Hargreaves' Mr Greedy is only slightly easier to read than John Steinbeck's classic Of Mice and Men, a study has found.
<chortles> An interesting list
of the 'easiest' and 'hardest' books to read - Gulliver's Travels
was rated as the hardest read.
I've not read all of Gulliver, but certainly parts, over the years. Not particularly hard going compared to Dickens and the like. But if you want really hard work, try The Castle
by Kafka. I've made at least three attempts on that one and just get completely lost somewhere between pages 200 and 300, then can't bear to pick it up before the library want it back. It's probably more fun than poking my eyes out with a ball point pen, but I'm not sure I want to find out the blunt way. It's worse than the listing of the multigenerational "experience" that are the Dune saga. Or, for that matter, the drawn-out death pangs of Tolkein Jr continually reprinting new, incomplete fragments of his Dad's notes.
