An author that I find completely overrated: Haruki Murakami. I read A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. I didn't dislike them so much as think they were kind of meh. Maybe something got lost in the translation.

2666 by Roberto Bolano. Another one that might have had translation issues. I found the first few parts of the book only alright- and a bit too pretentious- but I gave up during the part that described all of the murders in the small Mexican border town. Very grisly. After looking through some reviews at Amazon I realized that a number of people had the same impression of the book as I did, and I gave myself permission to put the damn thing away.
