For the Chunkster Challenge, I committed to reading four chunksters (books of 450 pages or longer) this year. But it turns out I read six! These were:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Middlemarch by George Eliot
The favorite (and the biggest surprise) was Les Miserables. It is so very long, and I had always heard it described as near-torture, that I had some trepidations going in. But this book hooked me immediately by starting off with the life of the good Bishop of Digne, with whom I am now in love.
There is no least favorite; there were no disappointments; I enjoyed them all. Actually, in this blog you will rarely read of disappointments, because I rarely continue reading a book I dislike. I'm not in school, haha.
Thanks Wendy and Vasilly, for this enjoyable challenge!
