I’m going to agree and disagree. There is one really great sentence so far, this was the first Japanese joke(in terms of using homonyms) I ever read and understood:
その歯医者は、生まれながらの敗者であった。

I am often frustrated by the sentences. If they are not too long I’ll play them using YomiChan Chrome extension or at least try and see if I understand the context and how it might be used. If they are long I’ll skip over them. I’d rather they all be useful though.

Only my 2cts and personal opinion…
I find it much better with the newly added supplemental sentences as it offers easier examples and more context for the vocab.
While I do agree that many are complicated, I like it since it enables me to work on many grammar points. Honestly, there are texts in the Minna no Nihongo textbooks which are at least as complicated as those sentences (and they come from normal newspapers or books).

Unknown vocab/kanji is usually no issue thanks to rikaichamp &co. and the English translation helps making sense out of it.
