It is time for the Book Blogger Hop again!! Hosted by the amazing Crazy for Books!
The Question is:
What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?
Of course both matter, but I think the plot is the most important. If the story-line is wrong, if things happen that are completely uncalled for or when the story line is so cliche you could finish it yourself the book just isn't fun to read. You want to be challenged by a story, you want to feel the need to finish it just so you can find out what happens. If the plot is good, than the characters are automatically given extra depth.
It is compeltely the other way round in movies. I know we don't discuss movies, but I felt I should add that. If the story line is crap, but the actors are amazing than the movie is watchable, because the actors can bring in their own expertise to make the characters credible. Characters from a book cannot do that!!
