The Stand is about 1100 pages, if I remember correctly. I think that's probably the longest one I've read.

Hurrr, well one book of around 1000-1300 hundred pages. dont remember exactly right now..

And as a serie i think it's somewhere between 5000-10000 thousand pages of one story.

Probably the Bible. Les Miserables and Gone with the Wind were quite long.

I read a book in third grade called something like Mr. Harris... We had to read 1500 pages worth of books over the year and do book reports on them and I thought it would be cool to read one book and get it over with. Boring book, but I did it.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/14/08 - 1:04:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think Gone with the Wind, it's 1037 pages
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/14/08 - 3:34:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Stand and/or It - whichever is longer. I think both are around 1200 pages.

I'm not sure how long Ulysses is, but I assume over 1000 pages. I'm in the process of reading it now actually.

I didn't finish it, but I attempted to read Ayn Rand's verbal diarrhea known as Atlas Shrugged.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 4/18/08 - 10:40:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Under 1000 pages, I suppose.

About 800something.

I read all 3,000 something pages of Proust's In Search of Lost Time - and I hated most of it! What a waste! Maybe a lot of it was lost in translation, but c'mon....how does a longa$$ book about a frivolous life redeem that same life? And I don't care about aristocrats, I'd rather Joyce's common man. Proust was a classist snob against meritocracy. His jibes at the poor were disproportionate. Everyone points to Orianne's red shoe incident as evidence that he also criticizes the rich, but Proust fetishizes the luxury of that shoe. It's not the same. I don't even know how many times I could have gotten laid instead of reading that stupid book.

I've read a quite a few books over 1,000 pages long. One that will always stick with me was Les Miserables that was a complete unabridged edition. I refused to read the short version in high school and read my own.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 3/29/10 - 12:33:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
That would be Les Miserables, 1463 pages, although in width and length, it's not that big. I want to try for War and Peace one of these days.

The longest book I read was called Romance of the Three Kingdoms which was over 1500 pages.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 3/29/10 - 1:07:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it would be the Bible. Not positive on that one,though.

Well, I read a Shakespeare anthology that's over 2000 pages, but that's including the notes and appendix and whatnot. As for novels... probably Les Mis.

Sarum by Edward Rutherford runs to 1145 pages.

Martin Gilbert's History of the 20th Century is 3049 pages long. It's arranged in 3 volumes but it is definitively one work.

_Les Miserables_, which is somewhere in the vicinity of 1100 pages.
