    Biggest refers to "size"...size can take on many meanings...I'll interpret it as the Book with the Most Impact on my life, and that would be "The Bible"

    A commentary on the whole bible. 4 volumes for a total of about 8,000 pages. Took many years, but was definitely worth it.

    Do you mean shear mass or number of pages. If by number of pages I'd have to say some of my Tom Clancy novels some of which are in excess of 600 pages. The largest book I have read was probably an atlas or a book of WW II aircraft which contained many large detailed diagrams. Great book.

  • Cn2012 2012/12/12 16:20:42
    Well, if you mean biggest as in , number of pages, it would have to be "It" by Stephen King. Scared the begeezus out of me. But it's my favorite. =) I just try not to read it at night. Lol.

    Right, I forgot about The Stand! And yes, Cujo does have a sad ending. =( give Christine a chance if you're ever up for giving King another try. Not as long, and way better than the movie. =)

  • Wizard_in_Time 2012/12/12 15:17:09
    In general, the bible. Novels, I'm not sure if L. Ron Hubbard's Battlefield Earth or Stephen King's It is longer. But the biggest book I've ever seen is a dictionary my mother had when I was a kid. It was one of the last editions of the Oxford English Dictionary complete in a single volume. It was freakin' huge!
  • Jack 2012/12/12 14:23:24
    It is a three in one - Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
  • Carol 2012/12/12 14:15:50
    War and Peace
    There were a few close seconds, looking at word counts.
  • Bolrog 2012/12/12 14:04:10
    Shogun, but if you count series...then the ongoing Safeholder Saga by Weber. safehold weber Shogun
  • Bolrog Bolrog 2012/12/12 14:05:37
    Ohhhh also i have read the Bible cover to cover King James version three times; so far. king james bible
  • Edbert 2012/12/12 13:24:18 (edited)
    Not sure if a trilogy counts, but if so the answer has to be "Foundation" by Isaac Asimov. Technically there were seven books, but the first three were written well before the other 4 that are essentially add-ons.

    Wikipedia lists the longest books by word count, with the top having 1,200,000 words. Some french book I've not heard of or seen listed here. But it shows Foundation as having over 1.5 million. Told you it was long!

    I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who thinks they are Science Fiction fans; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Don Quixote - it was very big because it was in the original Spanish and full of annotations.
