This is a question Books

We love books. Tell us about your favourite books and authors, and why they are so good. And while you're at it - having dined out for years on the time I threw Dan Brown out of a train window - tell us who to avoid.

To be fair
I think he has dragged it out quite a bit. Apparently he initially wanted to do 6 books which might have made for a faster paced plot.

Oh well, he's dead now so he can't do anything about it.

Here is every Robert Jordan book:

(1) Introduce plot and characters
(2) Several hundred pages of entertaining dialogue and well-written ambling about
(3) Ignore (2), teleport to main evil fellow, and kill same (often with some inexplicably gained new power)

I enjoyed his books, on the whole, as he was a very capable author. But the jarring point at which he obviously thought 'fuck, got to wrap this up, I'll give myself twenty pages' annoyed me every time.
