Booking Through Thursday: Character vs. Plot
This week, Booking Through Thursday asks: What’s more important to you? Real, three-dimensional, fleshed-out fascinating characters? Or an amazing, page-turning plot?
Oh boy, I'm not sure that I've had enough coffee yet this morning to deal with this question. This is definitely tough. I'm for balance in everything but if I had to choose, I guess I would rather read a plot driven book with characters you don't get to know very well than a character driven book with a super dry plot. I've read books where the characters are very real and fleshed out but if the plot isn't there, I'm not going to enjoy the book generally. All I can say is that luckily there is a plethora of books out there that have both great characters and great action!
What say you?
