Precisely. When you books stop being about telling a story and instead feature your main character literally preaching for 500+ pages, you've officially stopped being anything resembling a good author. Add in the dull, repetitive plot lines (oh look, Kahlan and Richard are separated again, weeeeeeeee) and you "graduate" to "soap opera hack". =)
