I don't mind a longer book if it's turning out to be a good read.
A good novel should weigh in at around 850 pages.
Martin has it right with his Game of Thrones.

Participating in threads and joining in the conversation is one thing, but it's the fact that some of your comments are bordering on being very insulting and offensive that's the problem, but that's just my opinion.Because despite the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, the clique get testy if a new comer dives in and tries to inject some life into the threads. I had 23 responses to my threads today.
A bit of debate soon livens up a long running forum that needs a blood transfusion.
This is my personal opinion.
