This sounds unusual. microtype does make typesetting a bit slower, but 
I've never encountered such a difference. When I compile the microtype 
docs (200+ pages), for instance, it typesets in 11 secs with, and 8 secs 
without the microtype package. So something seems to be going wrong in 
your case. Could you post your preamble? What does your book consist of 
(text, maths, tikz, ...?)
