    Let's take this on a case-by-case basis.
    1. No....but I've already started TDG.....
    2. Yes, that describes half the things I'm reading.
    3. Yes, but I might hold off on reading if there aren't many chapters released.
    4. No, I'm more concerned with not being homeless than reading novels.
    5. Yes, I'll probably be able to read the end of it eventually.
    6. I want to say Yes, but my actions say No.
    7. No, I hate it when that happens.
    8. No, and how dare the author not continue writing after dying. Lazy bums.

    Well, even if say I wouldn't read a novel without an ending, I end up dropping most of the ones I read so I probably won't see their endings even if they do get finished....

    Nervously reading the responses.....
    There are dropped novels I want to translate and I still go back to read them from time to time...

    The Grave Robbers' Chronicles can be considered 'no ending' in a way LOL

    most cn has no ending, they just ascend to higher realms until the author fed up with the novel

    I don't read those endless xianxia/wuxia/whatever novels(we just call it "qidian novels")....I only read danmei novels and they are either dropped or ended within 200 chapters. Most are around 100k-400k characters.

    The King's Avatar is the only "long" novel I read and that's already too much for me.

    My English sucks and I prefer to read in CN.....I even read English danmeis in Chinese....Those KR novels might have CN translations...

    Though, I know I should read more English novels to improve my translation, but I will choose something that's more helpful in terms of...English...

    Yes, i would read it. In fact, i'm pretty sure only 10% of all novel, manga, fanfic, webcomic that i read reached ending.

    Actually I will not, but for the novel i already read like (The Nine Godheads) which I find interesting before I know it is dropped. It leaves me sad because I don't know how the author will telling us the interaction between MC and FL :blobsad:
