The most complex I've read is the Dark Tower series. I want opinions and suggestions. (If you feel like it)

The Mr. Men books

Is it incest if I had sex with my brother in law's half sister? Because if it is, it was so ****ing worth it.

The Mr. Men books

Holy shit that's complex.

It looks a little hard.

Complex as in higher reading or as in detailed and twisting plots?
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

The latter.

Heart of Darkness...

Have in mind I'm from sweden and english ain't ma fluent language yo.
#9
Lord of the Rings I think. I've probably read a few individual books that were harder though, but I was too young to get much out of them.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Clan of the Cave Bear, perhaps.

The latter.

In that case...

I don't know. I've read some of the Dark Tower series but it seemed pretty straight forward to me. I don't read many series, I prefer individual stories.

The last three books are pretty complex, but it's really complex if you read the all the dark tower books. http://www.thedarktower.net/connections

Dune was probably the most complex and confusing book I've ever read. But it definitley pays off once you understand it/

The last book is very complex. And the connections too.

Paradise Lost by Milton. Holy **** that ****ed me up. I returned it and bought one with a guide. We had to read a challenging (teacher approval) for AP Eng. Literature classic and do a report on it. It's basically a 500+ page poem. I do recommend it though
A Seven Nation army couldn't hold me back.

Try reading V for Vendetta. I understood it well, but that's because I'm mainly a crackpot anyway.

The Bean Series by Orson Scott Card

I read all the Ender's Game books, is the Bean rendezvous any good? (huge fan of Ender series)
A Seven Nation army couldn't hold me back.
#28
Yeah I'd recommend reading all of the Bean series. Firstly because it's a freaking awesome series, and secondly because the Bean series ends up linking back to the Ender's Series in the new book that Card is writing. It's supposed to take off where Children of the Mind left off.

I love Paradise Lost

It sweeps the floor with Dante's pathetic attempts at epic poetry.

The scene where Satan is summoning all his forces together is so entirely amazing.

Orson Scott Card is awesome. If he's writing a new book, I can't wait to get it. (and he lives about half an hour away from me )

My vote goes to The Sound & The Fury. I thought it was a great book, but those first two chapters are a doozy.

The Dark Elf Trilogy, The Icewind Dale Trilogy, and The Hunter's Blades Trilogy

all by R. A. Salvatore and all of them are also about the same character. If you want epic plot twists, read those books.

Just don't come crying back to me when your brain explodes from the awesomeness.
