Q: What is the longest book you’ve read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?
The longest books I’ve read may have been George R.R. Martin’s Song of Fire and Ice series. I’ve read all of them with the exception of the latest book, A Dance with Dragons, that was released last year. These books are all well over 600 pages – I think Storm of Swords weighed in at around 1200 pages.
I love this series and I love the HBO show that is based on it. Before the first season aired, I tore through the books on a marathon, binge reading, obsessed craze and as a result, was a bit burned out when the latest installment was released. I have it on my Kindle and I’m waiting for the right moment to start it. If you haven’t read these, I highly recommend them. I’ve seen and heard many people compare the series to Lord of the Rings, which I’ve also read, but I totally disagree. I would say that if you like the political machinations of the film Elizabeth and the intrigue of the Showtime series The Tudors coupled with epic battles, multiple POVs, a smattering of sex, and some fantastical elements thrown in (dragons, mysticism, etc), then this is a series you’ll like.
