Meh, I think I read about 3 and the last one was a real struggle; not sure whether it's derivative or a lot of other stuff I've read is derived from it, but pretty bored overall.
Same with Feist's Magician; kinda felt like I'd read it all before.
Wheel of Time started out well but by about book 6 was a nightmare. If I left more than a couple of weeks between installments I forgot who was where with whom and even, latterly, who had been who when. Think I struggled up to 10 before giving.
Which is not to say that I don't like long, epic sagas. Just not minor variations on the same theme with casts of thousands.
