  • Hmm. I'm the opposite. Large books are actually a bit of a negative for me. I have been heard to call it shovelfiction. I've been resisting reading George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire [georgerrmartin.com] for a while because each of the books are near 1000 pages. It was quite good and there wasn't slack in the ~2800 pages.

    I don't mind if something long is composed of multiple small books such as the Foundation series though.

    I guess part of my problem comes from the bulk of such a book - my arms get tired. The other part comes from attempting to read some authors that just don't know how to edit their work; a recent example being Robert Jordan.
