I have lost count of the number of times that I have picked up a book that, by its genre, its story, its characters, should be a book that I love; but after reading a sample page of the badly-written prose that you describe, I've put it down again, and walked away.

Conversely, I very rarely pick up a book that I'm not already inclined to like for its genre, story and characters; regardless of how well-written the prose might be.
