    "Unbearable Lightness of Being will make you think about life, but it seems to do it in a disjointed way. Not that it's necessarily bad but one's expectations need to be kept in check as the author's perspective isn't necessarily the reader's."

    "We always crave to find the things that we love to do, and enjoy tremendously. And some may call them hobby and some just leisure. However, in A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, the hilarity through which the fun activities are depicted is very amusing to read. It portrays the perspective through which many interprets in a conventional and traditional ways, in a very adventurously exhilarating way that makes you do those things and never worry about the consequences.

    "It is made to be satirical. Not the best piece of literature I have read. A lot of the sentence structure is put together poorly and it is lacking in grammar. I didn't like it and wouldn't recommend it to others."

    "This book is just way too long for me. It's 417 pages to read and it's a slog to get through. I thought that the writing style was a bit repetitive and just too detailed for me to really enjoy it, unfortunately, which is a shame because the story seems really interesting and compelling, but I just couldn't get behind it with the way it was written.

    "Don't let the long name fool you: you won't be able to put this book down. I generally run bath water and by the time it gets cool, I am tired of reading for the night anyway. Not with this one: I have no idea how long later, I came out of the bath a complete prune and freezing to death. I rushed to get dressed, ran to my bed, and finished this wonderful book!"

    "Well, it's certainly not Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures From The Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, A Man Named Lars Farf, And One Other Story [...], now that is a long title! While a decent book, I would not consider this to be a book with a long title. There are books with much longer titles out there."

    "This is a very well known classic piece of literature, but not exactly what I expect for this search criteria. This is not a particularly long title at all. The book itself is also fairly short. I want to see books with much longer titles or at least lengthy contents."

    "This is a coming of age story for anyone who struggles in a society where they see their language and traditions slowly vanishing. It is not an easy read, not a can't put it down read. But it will slowly draw you into the plot."

    "Well, the title is decently long, five words, that's a lot of reading just there. Right on the cover! There are certainly books with much longer titles. For example, Lemoney Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events. That's seven words! Much longer. "
