It's a tie between Hawaii by James Michner and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, both for an advanced English class my senior year of high school. Both were over 1,000 pages, Atlas Shrugged was the least tedious. It's actually one of my favorites.

Humm,... The longest one ever read and finished was 700 pages. I am currently in the middle of Les Miserables, but I have been reading that for a LONG time! I don't even remember how many pages it is.

Treasure Island, I think. I can't remember how long it was, but I remember in grade school during library class we would dare each other to check that book out.
