The world's longest novels

Okay, this being Select Editions, maybe we don't understand the meaning of the words "long novel," but's list is still interesting to us. "We have selected 15 of the best single volume behemoths - all true monsters of literature that could be judged on their weight alone. It is possible to find longer novels but we thought it would be unkind to recommend L Ron Hubbard books or horrendously lengthy self-published beasts. Those readers lacking stamina can look away now." More...

By the way, we were linked to this via John Williams's The Second Pass, which we quote: "Atlas Shrugged is probably the longest novel I’ve ever read. And boy, did it feel like it."
