Readers, Feedback Please...?

READERS, FEEDBACK PLEASE - I've heard alot about book length from readers & publishers. Does book length matter when it comes to your decision on whether you want to read a book? If so, why?

  1. Well, since my favorite fiction books are of monstrous length -- "Ulysses," "Gravity's Rainbow" and "Infinite Jest," I'd have to say "no."

    But then again, few writers are as interesting as Joyce, Pynchon or Wallace. And I love some of the more sparse authors out there -- Vonnegut, Hemingway, Ursula K. Le Guin. And my main critique of Stephen King -- a great story teller -- is that he needs to edit. Since often his main point gets lost amid all the side-action.

    So, I suppose, it all depends.
