What book took you the longest to read, and do you feel it was the content or just the length that made it so?
King Hereafter, hands down. It wasn’t the length; I can zoom through a thousand pages in a few days. And it wasn’t really the content; again, huge, sweeping epics are kind of my thing, coming from fantasy as I do. It was the accessibility; Dunnett really throws you into the deep end and asks you to learn how to swim. It’s worth it, but the learning curve is so steep it took me three weeks to finish it off. I even cleared out an evening to sit down with it and the dog, and couldn’t make much headway. I even had to read a graphic novel during just so a review would actually go up on the blog (this is why I have a posting buffer now!). Ultimately, it was worth it, but three weeks is an absolute eternity for me in terms of reading.
