    Post Heavy reading

    Is there any appropriate word for a book that is heavy reading. I mean not easy to understand, needs too much of focusing and boring.

    See my corrections above. I can't think of a single word that covers all of that. You could call it a "heavy book" but that is open to misinterpretation because the speaker could be referring to its physical weight.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Heavy reading

    'Heavy reading' is fine as is. Like ems, I can't think of a single word for such a book.

    heavy

    adj

    15 dull and uninteresting
