I agree, especially with "excessively pedantic prose."

His novels tend to ramble on with long gaps between any action or drama which leaves me thinkning, "Okay, get on with it already!"

Then there is an overuse of alien languages that makes it difficult to understand what is being said or breaks up the scene in your head as you figure out what is being said.
