50 Tough Books for Extreme Readers

Descrição
From the Flavorwire post: "...for those of you who count yourself tough, here’s a list of books for you: some absurdly long, some notoriously difficult, some with intense or upsetting subject matter but blindingly brilliant prose, some packed into formations that require extra effort or mind expansion, and some that fit into none of those categories, but are definitely for tough girls (or guys) only. This list is limited to works of fiction, so straightforward philosophy is out, and a single book per author, so you’ll see Finnegans Wake (obviously) but not Ulysses. Don’t worry, the Ulysses is implied."

booksaplenty1949: We studied this in high school, for heaven's sake. Serious, but hardly in the "extreme" category.

Explicações
Gregorio_Roth: This book really takes my whole attention... I have read it three times and never finished it. I think it is fabulous though.
booksaplenty1949: Very clever, but very readable, I thought.

Explicações
CharlesTheB: Lydia Davis focuses on odd aspects of things that so many authors either don't notice or, perhaps, choose to ignore.
