I like 100,000 word novels and I like 65,000 word novels. But what I hate is when a 100,000 word novel felt like it could've been done in 65,000 words.
All stories are ultimately reducible to a very few sentences, so this complaint applies to any story more than a paragraph or two long.

Greater length is what allows for greater sophistication and depth. The goal is not to allow the reader to "breeze" through it.
