Hard to say what was the biggest, longest book I've ever read, but I can say the longest book I've ever read within 24 hours was Ulysses by James Joyce, which I did as a birthday dare (my b-day is very near Bloomsday). Took me a little over 17 hours to read from start to finish, minus breaks for food, quick naps and looking up critical notes for the book on the internet when I got confused about what the hell was going on, because trying to read Ulysses in a single day in not something anyone should ever do. :lol:

Well, I've read all the books in A Song of Ice and Fire, that's over 5,000 pages in total.

Other than that, probably 2666 by Roberto Bolaño (1032 pages in the Portuguese edition).

I can't say, maybe "operação cavalo de tróia", the first 4 books of the series. Each one was more than 500 pages, I think. Despite the name, it's a time travel to Jesus' times.
