Oh god, so I saw this come up and I had a momentary flash of annoyance that Wheel of Time wasn’t on the list, but it’s a little more niche than ASOIAF/GoT, so whatever.
But then I realized I could pretty easily figure it out myself.
Yeah, you think ASOIAF is super impressive at 98.33 hours, or 1,770,000 words?
Wheel of Time clocks in at a whopping 245.69 hours.Our beloved series is 4,422,400 words long. That makes it about 2.5 times the length of ASOIAF.
