I didn't find Kafka boring at all, even the unfinished novels. Although the incompleteness is somewhat irksome.

However, some of the short stories went over my head...

Theres no point in reading the Wheel of Time series, since the author died.

I got half way through

>>62 that's a good example of a series which lost it completely. Also liked it until book 4 or 5, but then was completely disgusted by the waste of time.
