This week's question for Tell Me Something Tuesday.... When is a book too long?
When it has a million sub-plots that I don’t care about.
When it bores me.
When it’s full of words for the sake of there being words. (Aka, overly padded with useless information.)
When you think it’s finished but it just keeps on rolling...
You know what though? You can never judge a book as too long just on it’s word count. I’ve read many a chonker (600-900ish pages) that I’ve wanted to keep reading forever and many 200-250 page books that were too long for the stories they were telling.
There is no right or wrong answer to this question... It's highly subjective.
