Does Fate/Stay Night count as a book? It might as well be I guess. But yeah, that's longer than the LotR books.

The longest book I've read has to be Robin Hobb's Fool's Fate, book three of the Tawny Man trilogy, at about nine-hundred pages. The best fantasy series I've ever read. It begins with Assassin's Apprentice, book one of the Farseer's trilogy. I can't recommend this series highly enough and I don't think I'll ever find another fantasy series that comes close to this one.

Under The Dome. I tore through that book. It had the trademark disappointing ending King is known for.


Oh god King was really going out on a limb with the ending.

A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell. It is absolutely amazing. It's slightly resembles Proust (which I've started by good lord who knows if I can finish) but it's soooooo good. Definitley one of my favorite works of fiction I've read.

Well, I haven't finished it yet, and technically it's 12 seperate novels that encompase a set that goes together and flows one into the next but it's still considered a single work of fiction so it counts. Altogether it's around 1,300 pages. I'm on book 9 of 12.

I don't which would be longer, Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand) or Les Miserables (Victor Hugo)

They were both really good books - but I wouldn't recommend Atlas Shrugged to just anyone. It's a very heavy book and a difficult read - not to mention, though the author is Russian, she wrote it in English, so the writing structure itself is a little disconcerting at first (a lottttt of long sentences, though somehow not run-ons).

Magician (unabridged) by Raymond E. Feist, for fun. 100% worth it.

Ulysses by James Joyce. Longest book in the world, or at least it was for me. I read it at Uni under duress...

harry potter series - worth it
song of ice and fire series - good story but not intense, especially the 4th and 5th book
mahasamar(in hindi) - worth it
