    "This book only has 247 pages. This Harry Potter novel does not fit the category of a book with more than 500 pages and does not really fit any genre of "best must-read book". This is a kid's book, written to fascinate adolescents who do not read very much otherwise. It is an extremely popular book on Amazon, however. "

    "Les Miserables is another one of those classic books that everyone should read at least once. You've probably seen a stage performance or a televised version, and now it's time to read the book. Highly recommended."

    "This is a great book that takes a well known tale and flips it to be seen from a new perspective. In this book you go through the same sword in the stone, King Arthur legend, but this time you see it from Morgraine's perspective. This gives the entire story a completely different feel. This is a wonderfully written book that really shows you things in a different light."

    "I had to do a report for school on any book as long as it had more than 500 pages. My first thought was to wonder if any books came with mega-sized fonts. Luckily, my mother recommended Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Well not at first, the book is over 1000 pages! But once I started reading, I got sucked in and it didn't feel that long at all. It's an amazing story and the best long book I've ever read."

    "This is one long epic book that is totally worth reading. If you haven’t read anything from Dumas before it was probably because his books are known for being long. The page count alone is daunting! You will enjoy every word of this masterpiece. One thing that hasn’t changed since 1844 is the human condition and the way we can strive for vengeance at times."
