Blog Hop - Aug 19

It’s been a while since our last hop and this week’s question over at Crazy for Books didn’t make our brain hurt too much, so....

Question:  What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?

Answer: According to Wikipedia the longest fiction novel we (Evan) every read was Atlas Shrugged at 645,000 words (1,450ish pages), although A Suitable Boy FELT like the longest book we every read at 591,552 words (1,349 pages).  Les Miserables, which we just finished earlier this week was one of the best “long” novels we every read (listened), standing in at 513,000 words (1,350ish).     

Wow, 3 answers for the price of 1, talk about value.  Then again that’s what we’re all about here at Two Bibliomaniacs.... oh, and books.  Give us a follow and we’ll be sure to return the favor!!!

  1. I forgot about Les Miserables - read it years ago.

  2. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  4. I never realized Atlas Shrugged was a huge book, I raced through it. But I really felt the time it took to read Les Miserables.

  5. The best part about books that don't feel long but are long is that it doesn't matter how long they actually are. I do remember reading Atlas Shrugged, it was a tad thick but I enjoyed it. Never read Les Miserables! Nor War and Peace, though I want too.

  8. That's a lot of long books! Atlas Shrugged is getting a lot of press these days. I think I'd like Les Miserable better, but both are daunting time-consumers!

  10. Hi-we are a husband and wife team of book bloggers, too! I guess there are a few of us out there. Glad to have found you. How did you like Ayn Rand? Haven't dipped the toe in yet, but we have it on the nook - that way it won't be so heavy to hold whilst reading it.
