Which book it took for you the longest period of time to read? Was it worthwhile?
On some of the Harry Potter books it took me over a year each. It wasn't because I didn't want to read them or anything. I was really busy with school and church, and let's be honest...those last few books were THICK.
Tortilla Flat. I started reading it in a hostel in 1993 only to find the last 3 pages missing (whoever would do that?!).
It wasn't until more than 10 years later that I thought to get another copy and read all the way through.
Definitely worthwhile, and perhaps I'll search out a copy again now you have reminded me
John Grisham - The Partner, it took me over a year and a half to finish, it was like a long sentence going on and on! Grisham has some excellent books like The Client and The Firm but The Partner was just lame! Towards the end i got fed up and skipped the last four chapters and read the last only to discover that the ending was SO PATHETIC that i nearly screamed! After a year and a half i felt i wasted my precious time! (sorry to waste yours by rambling on lol)
Human History by The Valorian Society - although not very lengthy (pages) the topic and the presentation was by far extremely complex considering what most of society has conditioned us as humans to think and believe. Absolutely worthwhile as the book was rare and I eventually managed to get numerous other books by these underground authors - all containing more wisdom and insight then status quo educational sources.
Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I started that monster about 5 years ago. I guess technically you could say I gave it up, but since I still have the bookmark in it where I left off, I still consider it a work in progress.
I think maybe Le Morte D'Aurthur by Mallory took me the longest. I was trying to read it with my son whom I was homeschooling. We both gave up about one third of the way through. We were reading the 700 page version. We both liked it a lot, and I'm glad we read as far as we did, but it was difficult to read my son kept complaining that it was just the same thing over and over, one knight hitting another knight over the head and causing blood to flow from his ear. I didn't agree I thought there was a lot going on, but the language and the style made it difficult to trudge through and plus it really does seem to describe every single battle almost exactly that way.
Schoolbooks, and I never even completed it. I tried genuinely to complete any of them for twelve long years, no one could exceed my time limit, could you, I dare you to? And no, damn them, they were a complete waste of my time, no use at all.
I read very quickly so usually can read a book in a few days. I read Vanity Fair, which is pretty long, and it took me about 2 weeks.
I also read The Pillars of the Earth like emichael, it took about a week and a half as I was at Disney World at the time and had to read in the evenings at the hotel! I just had to find out what would happen next, it's a great book.
