LengthEdit

Several online sources give 95022 words, but would be 271 standard pages. This interesting page analysing the words in some detail counts it at 96216, and may be more reliable except I don't know how much extra stuff it counted, which would be 275 standard pages.

First readEdit

FormatEdit

My own paperback version.

JournalEdit

Read once, a long time ago it seems, after reading The Lord of the Rings I think, although considering the time it took me to read that, it might have been something I read before finishing that.

RatingEdit

3

AwardsEdit

Number 25 on the BBC's Big Read.
