DAY 16 of 30-day Book Challenge – Longest book you ever read


And this will be the shortest post you’ll ever read. I made a promise a few months ago, never to mention Charles Dickens’ Bleak House again but now its rearing it’s big, massive head once more. Definitely the longest book I’ve ever read.

    I haven’t read Bleak House, though it’s been on my reading list for ages. Maybe that’s because it really is so very long…

    The longest book I ever read is The Count of Monte Cristo, which is way over one thousand pages even in small print. I always recommend it though because after the first 100 pages or so (which are quite slow), it’s so involving that you don’t notice the length anymore.

      My brother loves Alexander Dumas and when I saw that book I nearly fainted! If you threw it at someone you might just kill them! But my bro also swears by it, so maybe,(I said maybe) I’ll have a go at it soon! 🙂

      Try thinking about whats the shortest book you ever read, thats worse! 🙂
      Yes, Bleak House is not exactly what Dickens’ is famous for, but many people do praise it. It has its merits I suppose, but Oliver Twist is still my favourite.
