Book Blogger Hop (17 Dec, '10)


As always, this meme is being hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question comes from Alex over @ Geek on the Brink:

"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"

My Answer:

Hmm, that's sort of a hard one. I think I'm going to go with the plot. Sure, you want good characters, but you really need a good plot that carries the reader throughout the book. Keeps them wanting to continue the novel. If you have good characters but no plot, it just sorta defeats the whole purpose of writing the book. The plot's definitely more important, rather than the characters (my opinion!).

Happy Reading, and Merry Christmas!

This might be the best Book Blogger Hop question I've seen to date.

So what's the answer? Plot! Hop over to my blog and let me tell you how a good plot rescued bad characters from bad book oblivion.

Haha, I am the COMPLETE opposite :) I'll read a book with a so-so plot and barely even notice as long as the characters are great.

Hope you have a good weekend :)

I adore your rating system, the butterflies are cute!
Yes, plot trumps characters, but bad characters do defeat the purpose of writing a book. Nice point.

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
