What are your favorite doorstoppers?
Gimme your favorite novels that crack 500 pages or more.
I recently started re-reading The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follett’s epic 900-page historical novel. I first read it over 10 years ago and wanted to revisit the series because the final installment was just published. Diving into its deep waters has reminded me how much I love biggg books — I relish their immersive feel, rich backstories, and long timelines.
You know that rush and sense of satisfaction you get every time you finish a book? That feeling is increased tenfold when you’ve turned the final page of a book that could literally be used as a doorstopper. You also then gain some confidence for tackling any of the intimidating books that have long been on your TBR.
So, readers, in the comments below I want you to share your favorite novels that crack 500 pages or more. Winter is for hibernating, so grab a blanket, a warm beverage, and one of these recommendations.
