I read a lot, but I think I'm getting tired of all the weak endings in novels. Some have no payoff whatsoever after reading 300+ pages. Some end on a cliffhanger or like the author cut and pasted the 2nd half of their book to make novel #2. Some even write one novel's worth and then split it into five.

The beginnings are great, no problems there. It's the endings, resolution that I miss. I could be the only one that experiences this, but I'd like recommendations of good books that have a proper ending.

Has anyone else noticed this lack of satisfying endings?
