Thomas More’s book, “Utopia,” is more referred to than read, these days. It is also misunderstood to be a depiction of an idyllic as well as an ideal society.
Reading “Utopia” is far from an easy exercise; originally composed in Latin, it is available only in a very old English translation that features cumbersome sentence structure and archaic vocabulary. But the book contains some wonderfully interesting ideas, and is well worth the trouble to read. As for that, I don’t know of a single book of quality that isn’t challenging.
