The best long reads of 2012

Guardian excerpt

Throughout 2012, we've been trying something a bit different with all the features and interviews published by the Guardian and Observer. To make it easier for you to find the best stories to read, we set up the Long Good Read, a service which looked at all our lengthier features, found the interesting ones that our readers were spending the most time reading and then republished two of these stories a day on for people to enjoy during their morning or evening commute. We even tried turning all these stories into a features-only newspaper.

This experiment came to an end at the start of December - but here for your reading pleasure are the most enjoyed features of 2012 as digested by you, our readers:
