The Wheel of Time is an interesting one for me. I fell in love with the story, world, and characters. I never cared for the writing style. The biggest thing that made me power through the slow books was the fact that Brandon Sanderson finished it. Sanderson may not be a master of beautiful prose, but his style of storytelling is much more to my tastes than Jordan's style. In the last three books, I felt like I was reading the series as it always should have been (with a few flaws that are to be expected when a new writer takes over a series).
