Alan Moore's Jerusalem....?



New thread because I don’t want to pick through the “blah blah books” thread.

Anyway… worth it?


Heard it’s fucking huge. Hate huge books. Most aren’t worth it.


I’m going to read it as soon as I finish my current “fucking huge” book (Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle, 2/3 of the way through).

So… I’ll get back to you in a few months!


Agreed - but if it was a 1400 page book I was really into - then I’ve truly hit the jackpot.


I have it, but haven’t started it, because of the baby. Don’t know when I’ll get to it. Looks good though.


I wander around a little bit aimless after a long book


‘longer than the bible’

there is literally no way i would ever finish this book, even if i did want to read it


It’s not THAT long in the grand scheme of things. It’s shorter than Clarissa, Atlas Shrugged, and not really significantly longer than A Suitable Boy and Infinite Fucking Jest.


I’m trying to work out what the longest book I’ve ever read was. Not sure I’ve ever read anything over 1000 pages.

Anyway I just read a couple of snippets of text from Jerusalem in the Guardian review and can safely say it’s not for me.


No book is worth that amount of your time.
