Book List: 3 Books That Intimidate You
Tuesday, April 27, 2010Posted by Melissa (Avid Reader)
Here's this week's meme from Lost in Books. All the books that I've been intimidated by in the past, like Atlas Shrugged or Anna Karenina, are never scary once I read them. But before I pick them up they seem impossible.
1) Marcel Proust's seven volume "Remembrance of Things Past." This book has always terrified me. I know I'll read it (all of it) one day, but not yet.
2) "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. I don't know why exactly, but this one just never really appealed to me, but I want to eventually read it. I'm waiting until it seems like less of a struggle to tackle it.
3) "The Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri. This epic poem terrifies me. In my head it's going to be incredibly difficult to read.
