If the story is gripping from page 1, the plot keeps at a good pace, dialogue and characters are well defined, and you're engaged all the way through, then the only thing that might be difficult about a 1,000+ page book is the sheer size and heaviness of having to hold it. Obviously, if it's on Kindle this isn't an issue at all.
The last near 1,000 page fiction book I read was the third George R R Martin "Kingdoms of Fire and Ice" book. That one, for me, was the best of the series and just flew by because the story was so gripping. The next book, which was less than half as long, was a total plodding bore that SEEMED like a thousand pages.

As others have said - it comes down to content. If the book is a page-turner, it won't matter so much that it's a long book.
