If you're looking for a great a page turner that comes in over 800 pages, look no further; Tolkien's work will keep you captivated for weeks (or days, depending on how fast you read).

    "I'll admit it...the unabridged version of The Stand is still the longest book I have ever read. At nearly 1200 pages...it is quite the challenge. It took me like 18 months reading it on and off...but I did. I win, but not really. A great story with tons of character development for a large cast of characters."

In addition to a meaningful plot, this had interesting character development that really touched on a variety of subjects. I really found this to be an invigorating tale of romance and meaning."

    "I've always liked longer books, they're usually full of material for me to get immersed in while reading. I usually aim for 800 or more, this seems to offer enough of a story to keep me entertained. This book hwoever goes over and beyond what I want and its' great. This book is over 1200 pages long and it's by George R.R. Martin a very common household name now."

    "While Middlemarch tackles many issues of the time period in which it's set, I don't feel as if it touched on any current society issues or any issues that have really stood the test of time. There's many other novels that I feel either address current issues or include broader social issues that are still relevant in society today, such as writing about inequality in broad terms. "
