Welcome to Penn Scripter's Ramblings
Penn Scripter - Unexpected Paranormal Romance
Super Long Books Worth Reading
HUGE Books are a thing.
When we opened the print proof package for The Demon of Reginhart, it was in an unassuming manila envelope. Then, I (Stephanie) reached in and pulled out the massive 500 page tome.
I knew it would be big and I was so glad we went with the 6X9 size. But it's pretty hefty and to this day, I still look for places where we could have cut or trimmed or shortened and honestly, I'm just not that good of a writer to be able to do that.
But, I'm fairly proud of it and love seeing it on the book shelf.
The Demon of Reginhart Is in Good Company Being a Long Novel
When we were writing our premier novel, we didn’t think about anyone taking a big gulp at reading 487 pages. In fact, in terms of books that are extra long and worth reading, we’re in great company.
Here are a few greats and their page counts:
Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes (976 pp.)
War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy (1,296 pp.)
The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (824 pp.)
In Search of Lost Time, by Marcel Proust (4,215 pp.)
The Lord of the Rings, by J. R. R. Tolkien (1,178 pp.)
Shogun, by James Clavell (1,192 pp.)
The Stand, by Stephen King (823/1,152 pp.)
The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett (816 pp.)
All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr (531 pages)
American Gods, by Neil Gaiman (635 pages)
Winter’s Tale, by Mark Helprin (748 pages)
Lonesome Dove, by Larry McMurtry (864 pages)
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt (784 pages)
Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon (640 pages)
All great books. All super long. All super worth it, including The Demon of Reginhart, of course!
