WOULDN'T IT BE MORE ACCURATE TO SAY...:

The Top 10 Most Difficult Books  (Emily Colette Wilkinson & Garth Risk Hallberg, Aug 03, 2012, Publishers Weekly)

Back in 2009, The Millions started its "Difficult Books" series--devoted to identifying the hardest and most frustrating books ever written, as well as what made them so hard and frustrating. The two curators, Emily Colette Wilkinson and Garth Risk Hallberg, have selected the most difficult of the most difficult, telling us about the 10 literary Mt. Everests waiting out there for you to climb, should you be so bold. If you can somehow read all 10, you probably ascend to the being immediately above Homo sapiens. 


...that texts that fail to communicate and have nothing to say are sub-human rather than transhuman?    Why not just read the pages that monkeys produce while they aren't typing Hamlet if you're looking for obscurity?
