Put it this way, it's almost twice as long as War & Peace!
Well, it certainly doesn't make me feel fickle for turning to other reads in between the nine volumes.
I have Fingersmith and Midnight's Children on hand. Yet neither are light nor short, so hardly diversions.
I also have Lolita, which, after years of putting him off, is one of the author's I must read before I die.
What's the longest novel you've ever read, and was it worth it?
