Infinite Jest. I keep trying to to read it again and again but I always give up after the first few chapters. Probably read the first two chapters 5 times now.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
1/3 of the way through
Couldn't connect with the story or the language.

Anti-Oedipus by Deleuze and Guattari

I want to read it but it makes no sense to me.

Walden by Thoreau.
Given up for a second time, even after skipping the longwinded first section.
Heavy horrible prose. Sanctimonius sarcasm throughout.

3 Musketeers
I got around a third of the way through.
I wound up so lost and clueless about what the fuck was going on and didn't know where I should flip back to catch up. I also wasn't very interested in the first place, hence why I let my mind wander while reading.
