A Song of Ice and Fire series... each book is like 1200+ pages if I remembered correctly.

The Art of War

I have War and Peace and Anna Karenina but haven't got around to starting them yet.

Wheel of time books (not sure which ones are over 1.000 pages but they are huge and there are 14 books)

The bible sucks...not much character development, terrible dialogue, the plot is not very believable, pretty much a snooze fest.

I imagine Hell would be a whole lot more fun and interesting than Heaven, so not a bad deal.

Only 1000 pager that comes to mind is Atlas Shrugged and that book could have been 400 pages shorter if Ayn Rand didn't like the sound of her own voice so much.

John Galt is supposed to be a revolutionary genius who discovered the most efficient use of energy in human history....yet he gives a radio broadcast that has a manuscript of 90 pages. You would think that a engineer and genius of his caliber wouldn't say the same thing 20 different ways in a speech.

It's a book, though. There is no sound.

Nah. Just doesn't make sense that the Sovereign in Hell would punish souls in his domain for joining his fight against the Tyrant in Heaven. History is written by the victors so obviously everything Lucifer related will be negative when authored by Jehovah and his various mouthpieces. What people forget (or never knew) is that Lucifer was God's right hand man, the most powerful and beautiful of the archangels. He started his war because of the perceived injustices done by the big man and his son.

It wasn't because he was 'evil', maybe a little power hungry. But he had legit grievances and he can be viewed as a sort of freedom fighter. His coup failed and he was banished from Heaven. So logically... why would he punish those who, like himself, fought against tyranny? If anything, he would reward them, no?

All Heaven is- everyone spending every waking moment fawning over and praising an insecure overlord. Does that sound more enticing than say a game of strip poker with Elizabeth Bathory and Bonnie Parker?

Weird view of hell you got. I'm more accustomed to the whole "burning for eternity" thing. It kind of drags the place down, you know. I mean, shit an "eternity"? At least give us the weekends.
