We are talking books, here. Yeah, that is right. Books. Big Books. And why we like/dislike them. I mean, does the size of a book even matter?
I find large books to be daunting. There, I said it. Yes there is this “I like big books and I cannot lie” thing out there but that isn’t me. I prefer books in the comfortable 300 page range. Longer books often seem unnecessary. I mean, did you really need to use that many words to get your story across? I’m looking at you Diana Gabaldon lol. But I realize many people prefer books to be long and descriptions to be lengthy. I just prefer the more direct approach, since my attention span tends to wander easily.
I think there is a time and place for shorter books and longer books. I have no problem with either one. The majority of the books I read are probably in the 300 page range. But I also read longer books. Diana Gabaldon. Ken Follet. Deborah Harkness. All books a great. It just depends on what you are in the mood for. A quick weekend read. Or a long, in depth novel.
