What books do you wish had been written by someone else? Books where you fell in love with the characters or the story or the setting, or something, and the author couldn't pull it off?

My big ones are:
The Stephen Donaldson Thomas Covenant books. I love the setting, I love the characters except the protagonists.

John Ringo's Pre-Ghost Work. (Ghost et al. could just go away.)

Eww. He started so strong then went insane. And he stripped the rape scene from Friday out and used it twice in Cally's War. Perhaps the least stolen Heinlein scene ever. For a good reason.

Goodkind's Sword of Truth

Such a strong start, such a miserable everything else.
