[quote=“scherpschutter, post:11, topic:1901”]With the exception of Proust (thousands of pages, no narratave in the classic sense) and that classic Chinese novel, none of these novels can be called really ‘heavy’. Crime and punishment is complex from a philisophical point of view, but it can be read as a thriller too, and most peoplewho have read it, call it very suspenseful.
Tolstoj, Dickens, Eliot, Sienkiewicz: those novels are long, but not difficult to read.[/quote]
When I said “heavy”, I ment books that deal with large, important themes.
