What's the longest book you've ever read? You can give the page count or word count.
And what's the longest movie you've sat through, willingly or not?The Lord of the Rings
, which I wrote about
this week, clocks in at 455,125 words, says commonplacebook.com
. But that's nothing to Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy
(591,554 words). I have yet to read it.
I doubt there's a longer movie than The Return of the King
, though. The theatrical release was 3 hours and 21 minutes! Never mind the Extended and Special Extended Blu-Ray editions – for true fans only.
