Booking Through Thursday: Character or Plot
A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. Hosted at Booking Through Thursday.
Today's question is:
What’s more important to you? Real, three-dimensional, fleshed-out fascinating characters? Or an amazing, page-turning plot? (Yes, I know, they are both important. But if you had to pick one as being more important than the other?
You know this is really hard because they really do go together and they both need to be good to make a successful book. I've heard some people say oh the plot was great but the characters weren't relatable. I think in my opinion even though the plot is predictable or so basic and not as fabulous as let's say The Hunger Games that it makes it all worth it if you have some amazing characters that you can connect with. I think the characters are more important because if you don't like them then y ou are not going to continue to read about them. Plus even if the plot is not good at least maybe the character will make you laugh or cry or really just feel anything. So I go with Character!
