I did read Cloud Atlas and the length was not an issue. It was a very easy read. That's one thing I don't see people taking into account. I, Robot is longer, but it's going to be an easier read then Ethan Frome.

People, please don't vote for something because it's shorter. Frome is actually longer in some ways due to it not being an easy read. It's boring, depressing, and written in a way you may not be used to. So it may very well feel like a chore to read where as I, Robot will be a breeze to read even though it is longer.
