Are you cautious about starting a hefer-sized book? Reading is a commitment that requires time, passion, and patience. Depending on the size of the book, the level of commitment changes. There are some amazing books that are on the larger side, but there are also a lot of books that a long, drawn out, and frankly not that great (at least in my opinion).
In the interest of trying to help my readers save some time, here are my top ten big books that are worth the commitment.
The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss (First book in the King Killer Chronicles)
Life After Life – Kate Atkinson
American Gods – Niel Gaiman
The Poisonwood Bible – Barbara Kingsolver
1Q84 – Haruki Murakami
The Ill-Made Mute – Cecilia Dart-Thornton (First book in the Bitterbind Trilogy)
The Angel’s Game – Carlos Ruiz Zafron
The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt
Love in the Time of Cholera – Garbiel Garcia Marquez
Hard Choices – Hilary Rodham-Clinton
