Middlemarch by George Eliot
I read Middlemarch for the Very Long Classic Novel category for my Back to the Classics Challenge this year, and it certainly was that (762 pages of story plus introduction, afterword, notes, and bibliography). I enjoyed it; I wouldn't call it one of my favorites, but it was still good. It was pretty much of a character study, and I found myself caring about what happened to the characters. I wouldn't have minded if it had been a bit shorter, but I never really got bored with it. It did take reading a hundred pages or more before I knew that I was going to like it though. I rated it 3 out of 5.
