What’s the longest book you’ve ever read?

Day 35 of the 40 day book challenge is ‘the longest book I have ever read’.

I’m almost certain it would be this one, A Suitable Boy.

I read it years ago and absolutely loved it, but it was hard to read because it was so heavy to hold (a Kindle would have been handy…).

There was even a warning in the front of the book that it will “strain your purse and sprain your wrists.”

Have you read it?

  1. Yes! And I loved it. I’ve probably already told the story before? I read it after I first moved to England I was horribly depressed about it all. I didn’t know anyone and I wasn’t adjusting well to living in another country and not working and well, not doing much of anything. And a friend of N’s gave me this book to read. And it was just what I needed at the time, a huge story to fall into and take my mind off the shit in my own life. I love this book.

  2. No, it’s been a book I’ve been aware of but never got round to investigating. I think that if it’s all counted as one book then LOTR is the longest book I’ve read.

  3. I have never read it. I think the longest book I’ve ever read was Stephen King’s The Stand (1300 +). It’s too scary for you though. 😉 I read it in four days. I loved it, obviously.
