“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
The longest book I read was "The Far Pavillions" by M.M. Kaye. It's 960 pages of saga about an English boy born in colonial India and raised by native Indians, who ends up joining the British Army and falling in love with his childhood sweetheart, who is about to marry some prince . . . dun dun DUN! I actually read it when I was 13 or 14. I can't decide if it's awesome or sad that I read longer books in middle school than I do now. Now, I usually don't read books over 450 pages because I just don't have the patience. And technically, I didn't finish it, since I stopped about 50 pages from the end. I have no idea WHY I did that! You'd think after reading the fist 900 pages, I could make it through the last 50, but apparently not.
