Multi-volume stories

I’m thinking here of any story that is split into more than one volume, stories such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Rowling’s Harry Potter volumes, Eddings’ Belgariad, to name just a few. Christie’s Hercule Perot stories do not count, nor do Gardner’s Sherlock Holmes stories, as the reader can consume them in any order. Savvy?

  1. Do you enjoy reading multi-volume stories?
  2. Do you prefer the shorter stories that are done in two or three volumes, or do you willingly go for longer tales?
  3. What do you like/dislike about these long tales?
