- Has anyone read the whole thing? If so, how did they do it? If My Calculations Are Correct, the average adult would take the equivalent of 37.5 days to read 3,500,000 words, assuming a reading speed of 250 WPM. If you read as if it was your full-time job (ie., assuming 8 hours a day), it would take you 113 days to finish. I mean, the author's dedication to cranking it out isn't quite so confusing to me, since people who write purely for fun often find their own ideas endlessly interesting, but surely most readers just don't have that kind of attention span. So... has anyone reading this actually finished it? Has anyone made a solid dent in it before giving up? If you've read it, what was your method? How long did it take? Do you manage to retain it or did you start forgetting what happened at the beginning of the story by the time you reached the end? And what makes it so long? Is it complex, or repetitive, or is there a lot of padding?
