I think it was short

for me, it's Les MisÚrables. Nothing more painful. But I was glad the pace picked up and before I gave up totally after 2 years struggling (yes, sounds ridiculous but true ) to read about nonsense people did nonsense things, finally someone important did something important.

EDIT: wait, there IS a thing more painful. It's called Peace and War, which I never managed to finish, which has nothing to do with this thread.
