If you thought that reading manga would be boring, I can't even imagine what you'd think about reading 1400-page novels like Les Miserables.

As for the height, it's rather hard to tell. If you have read Planetes before, you'd be familiar with the idea of varying heights due to the different intensities of gravity depending on where one grows up. Since the size of the Megastructure is approximately equal to the size of Jupiter's orbit, there's no reliable point of comparison for Blame!. However...

Spoiler for spoilers concerning the protagonist:

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
