Mike | 3 comments Ok,so a little spin on the “best books I’ve read” theme but... best book you’ve read with under 300 pages?

Meny | 13 comments Lord of Light is one of my favourites of any genre, good thing it covers 4-5 of them...
As an added challenge you have Nine Princes in Amber and Roadmarks which clock-in at under 200, and are two of the best at any length...

Emily | 7 comments As of late? Annihilation, but my favorite ever under 300 pages? Terry Pratchett's The Color of Magic will always be 228 pages of pure goodness - a lot of the Discworld series of books will fall under my "short, but GREAT" books though.

Harveen (harvskhails) | 12 comments I just finished Folk by Zoe Gilbert and that was pretty good. 234 pages of short stories about characters in a small village in a style that's reminiscent of traditional folk tales and Grimm's or Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales where the endings of each story aren't entirely happy or unhappy but leave you with a sense of unease.

William Gwynne (willjrgwynne) | 12 comments The old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway - around the 100 pages mark. Written beautifully with very thought provoking content
