I don't mind the different POV, but yes there were tons. And a couple of the books even had different main characters, like the ones that focused on Perrin or Mat. I loved the Sword of Truth series too.
If you haven't read the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, I would highly recommend those. There are only 2 out and we've been waiting for the 3rd for years. But they focus (if I remember correctly) just on the main protagonist mostly.
Oh, I'm perfectly happy with up to 4 POVs. 5 in a pinch. But when you go beyond that. I will finish whatever book I'm reading and stop now. I know it's something I dslike so I don't bother anymore.
I REALLY tried with The Wheel of Time because I had loved the first 7 books so much. I struggled through to book 11. (I read the wikis to see. it's been over 15 years since I read these) It was just... Every time someone left the main party the story become more and more fractured. I just lost interest. I know my brother kept reading.
I read the Name of the Wind a few years ago. Husband was supposed to read it with me, but he didn't have a lot of time... It was interesting. I definitely prefer Warbreaker by Brian Sanderson. That book gripped me and I couldn't put it down! It had a lot of different points of view, but not enough to put me off.
