iBooks will open it but will take a long time. If you want to use iBooks, open it and leave your iPad somewhere no one will disturb it. Give it about 10 minutes.
Some other alternatives are GoodReader, PDF Expert, ReaddleDocs, PDF Reader Pro.

IBooks does fine with the 700MB image PDF I have of the Calvin and Hobbes strips.
