  • Depends on how long you have. You should be able to get through it in a few sittings, maybe 3-5 hours total. Then again, everyone reads at different speeds. It’s a great book and worth some attention though.

  • I read it in 2 days, with plenty of breaks. I’d read like 2-3 chapters at a time (the chapters are short) and then go do something else for a few hours. It’s a good, fast read. I think you’ll like it. It’s not difficult.

  • Depends on how fast you read, how many interruptions you have, etc. I think it took me around 2 hours the last time I read it. It really shouldn’t take you too long, though – it’s a short book, the writing style is very easy to understand, and the story moves fairly quickly. =)

  • It took me three days, but then I was in middle school and taking tennis lessons at the time so I could not devote all my time to it; I read chapters in between classes and sets. Oddly, the sound of the fuzzy tennis balls being hit off the walls and court made an interesting backdrop to the book.

  • It took me about a week with me only reading about half an hour to an hour each day anyway. It was a great book though, it should be a breeze to finish if you have the time.

    Source(s): Read it last year for school 🙂
  • it depends if you want to read it fast it would take 5-6 hours

    if not about a couple of days.

    it took me 2 weeks cuz that the timed i only had

  • Honestly it depends on you. It took me a couple weeks to get through it. I’m not exactly a fast reader but that one gave me more trouble than usual because I just couldn’t get into the story and I’m still wondering why it’s supposed to be a classic.

  • It can be read in 2 or 3 days-enjoy it.

  • Three nights only just what I’ve done. Take to read it before bedtime (8:30-12 am).
