Q: What’s the biggest book you’ve read recently?
(Feel free to think “big” as size, or as popularity, or in any other way you care to interpret.)
If we're talking biggest in size then The Sunne in Splendour (944 pages) by Sharon Kay Penman is the winner, followed by her When Christ and his Saints Slept (784 pages).
I absolutely loved Sunne and was so disappointed when it ended. It could have been another 100 pages or more and I would not have cared. And of course, even though I knew what was coming at the end, I still wanted to cry and wished that somehow, history could change. If a book is really good, really pulls you in, you usually do not notice if it is actually a really big book in size.
You've always heard the old saying "Don't judge a book by its cover." Well, we need to add to that "Don't judge a book by its size" as well. I've certainly found that some really short little books are absolutely horrible and a waste of my reading time.
