Hi :)
The first step is to try renaming the User Profile
Taht seems to magically fix a lot of issues as it "resets LibreOffice back to factory defaults", 
which a reinstall doesn't do.  

However, do other programs also crash?  Which Operating System are you using, or at least which 
platform; Windows, Gnu&Linux (eg Ubuntu, Mageia, Fedora), Mac or Bsd?  Have you recently added a 
new graphics card?  

In LibreOffice you can bump up various memory settings 
Tools - Options - Memory

Crashes are often caused by a bad version of java.  Could you let us know which one you are 
currently using?
Tools - Options - Java
At the top of that page is a tick-box allowing you to switch off java so that it doesn't get used 
by LibreOffice at all.  Your web-browsers and stuff will all continue to use it but at least LO 
wont.  If LibreOffice really needs java for something then it will just give you a pop-up grumble, 
in which case just re-tick the box and try whatever it was again.  You only need java for some 
databases, some Extensions and some wizards.  

Regards from
Tom :)

*Secondary question *
Does Libraoffice normally struggle with large documents (crashers), if so
any good practices to avoid the resulting aggravation 

In my experience: no, it does not. The longest document I have is LO Writer 
3.4 guide. It's about 400 pages long and ≈125 000 words (so it's a bit longer 
than yours). It opens without problems.
I used to have OpenDocument v1.2 specification in ODT format. It is about twice 
as long as Writer Guide. It took forever to load (probably due to excessive 
usage of fields), but it did not crash LO.

What version of LO are you using?
Could it be that your operating system is running out of memory? How much RAM 
does your computer have? Are you running any other applications while reading 
this document? Especially web browsers are memory-hungry these times.
