    different lengths are suitable for different books. Les miserables benefits from it's great length, but it would be a detriment to a Hemingway novel, for example. some things need to be concise, whereas others are improved by lengthy digressions. there is no ideal length

    Thanks to the digital medium, we can finally write single volume works in the million page range. In the future authors will not write multiple novels or series but only ONE book in their whole lifetime. This will usher in an utopian era of literature.

        I love reading memoirs especially of the 18th century. This is one of the great first hand sources of life in that time.

    For a novel? 250-350 pages, ideally.

    Over 400 is a bit long. Over 500, too long.

    It's not the size of the book that counts, it's how much you read it.

    Enough pages to get the story told, or enough pages to deeply inform on subject.
    Lower than that and you run into stupid trilogies and incomplete info pamphlets.

      that's not a fair attitude anon
      if I am say an editor and say 200 pages, the author could probably distill 400 pages into 200 without any loss... or expand 100 into 200 without any dilution
      but when we come to stuff like "Enough pages to get the story told, or enough pages to deeply inform on subject" then we get into the hairy issue of CONTEXT which gets automatically resolved in the first case I mentioned
      resolving the issue of context is a very hairy subject, evidence being that science needed 200 years to do so (if you don't believe me, read any scientific work from 1800 or 1900: same rigor but major difference in "para-content")
      so yeah, I prefer shitty authors writing stupid works (trilogies or pamphlets), at least I can more quickly judge if I should read or not
