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.
It also allows for issues with pacing.
Not to me. There was never a moment where I felt it dragged on, or the pacing was off.
To each his own I guess.
