    "With the movie adaptation recently hitting theaters, I wanted to check out the source material to prepare me for the upcoming second part. I personally found the book very dense and a long read, and it took me several sessions to get through it. The book itself has some scenes I found questionable and some content that is not appropriate for children, so it wasn't really my cup of tea. People who want to get familiar with Stephen King's large body of work may want to start elsewhere."

    "As a book with more than 1000 pages, this is definitely a thick book. This book is a good solution to this topic."

    "A "thick" book is a subjective judgment. When I think of something that's thick, I think of things that are thousands of pages and will take me a considerable amount of time to read. "The Historian" is only 720 pages, but each and every one of them is gripping. I'm not sure that it would fit within this niche in my own personal opinion, but it's certainly not a novella. Since it's gripping, I recommend it; however, if you're looking for a true "thick" book, you'll probably have to look elsewhere, since it's possible to knock this one out in a weekend."

    "Jane Eyre is in the genre of "high school lit," and that is where I read it. Typical of the Bronte sisters, reading this book is just as much suffering as the main character experiences herself. It's really exhausting reading page after page of the main character suffering through no fault of her own. It's not absorbing in the sense of a tragedy, it's just mindless suffering. Pass."
