I tried to read one or two of Danielle Steele’s novels a few years ago but I just could not make myself get through to the end. I just did not like her writing style and I could not muster any sympathy for her characters. Many of them seemed creepy and misogynistic.

Does anyone else have examples of novels they hated but when translated on screen were actually pleasant? They don’t have to be Oscar quality films, just good enough to watch with hankies handy.
