I've just finished reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and I'm convinced I should have joined the Chunkster Challenge! At 600+ pages, this one certainly qualifies.
I've got a little research and thinking to do before I write my review, but I will be posting one for this title.
I chose this title for our book club to read since I thought it would be good for discussion (it will), I had always wanted to read it, and it fit with the types of books we read in our book club. When I selected it, I realized that it would be somewhat challenging considering the year it was written (1860) and the conventions of Victorian/Gothic literature, but I had no idea that it was sooo long. I really didn't mean to subject anyone to a lengthy Victorian melodrama. Really. Honest. Think they'll forgive me?
Trivia: Did you know that Andrew Lloyd Webber made a musical out of this?? Read about it here or here.
