See The Books of Enormous Size!

One thing I thoroughly enjoy is rather long books. Books that take months to finish and leave you breathless. I’ve compiled a list of long books, with a short summary and the length of the books. Enjoy!

(The total pages may not be correct for all versions, but you get the gist of it)

The Bible

Doesn’t really need an introduction, pretty much everyone knows about it.

The Bible has about 1100 pages to it.

 

 

 

 

 The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy – J.R.R. Tolkien

In ancient times, rings called The Rings of Power were crafted by Elven smiths. A ring was crafted called One Ring, and it was a ring of supreme power.

All three books together have a combined total of 1008 pages.

  1. A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth: 1474 pages. It’s currently sitting on my bookshelf, waiting to be read. I’m actually a little scared of it, lol. But I do love thick books.

    My friend has read Clarissa (1534 pages). All he replied was “never again”.

  2. The Redemption of Althalus by David Eddings has 928 pages, I read it in about three days, I lost about half a stone in wieght and don’t regret a minute of it.
