Concision. It doesn't need to be dry and dull, but nothing kills a good story more than being needlessly wordy. I can't tell you how many good books and stories have been killed by purple prose for me.

A great story and attention to detail make the best books. Those are nothing without brilliant prosody and appropriate language skills though.

For example, I could never flaw Tolkien on his story or detail in Lord of the Rings but I don't really like the way the books are written. Peter Jackson took the story and all of Tolkien's details and made them into something (I believe to be) altogether more spectacular. (Though Peter Jackson makes movies, not books.)

On the other end of the spectrum, Douglas Adams wrote silly, absurdist stories, but the way he wrote and the way he phrased everything was ****ing brilliant. If you had given somebody else the plot of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and asked them to write it, probably wouldn't be anywhere near the standard of Adams'. The TV and movie adaptations are alright, but they employ narrators to read some of Adam's brilliant descriptions that would have been otherwise lost.
