Q: What is the longest book you've read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?
I read Wise Man's Fear (994) immediately after The Name of the Wind (662)... on my Nook, so I didn't realize it was 1658 pgs until now. Together, they're the longest read for me.
I think Wise Man's Fear improved a lot by following first book immediately... it's not so good as a standalone. Actually... if you're interested in reading the series, I'd wait 'til the next book comes out and read 'em all together. There's so much going on and plenty left hangin'. I was planning on rereading 'em myself... not realizing how many pages I was talking about. I'm not sure I wanted to know this information!!!
Maybe I month later I dove into The Deed of Paksenarrion, which was also amazing. I cried, I shook the book, I swore undying fealty to Elizabeth Moon forever. Love!
I remember the first time I held a thick volume in my hand with a deep sigh of anticipation - it was Christy by Catherine Marshall. Have you read that?! It's only 501 pgs. I started it in the late afternoon and finished it around 4am back when I was young and could still function after being up all night.
(I've had kids... so mess with my sleep now, and ya git momma-bear GROWL!! Six years of being up half the night does weird things to ya!)
I love a really good big book, when the story is so great, you never want it to stop. Nothing is as tedious as a horrible book that never ends, though... I'm very happy to see everyone's answers this week...
