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?
Hmm, I'm gonna have to go with character. No matter how good the plot is, if the characters aren't likable and realistic, I simply will not enjoy the book as much as before. Take one example. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead was very well-written and I really loved the plot. BUT. I couldn't stand the main character, Rose. It seems like many people love her, so well, I guess its just me. In any case, because of her, I didn't like the book that much.
And besides, I really feel that the characters are the ones that make the story. I mean, they're the ones living the plot in the book, the ones whose innermost thoughts you're privy to. Through their thoughts and their actions will you then see the plot. For me to be fully immersed in the book, I must be able to feel like the character, whether I like that character or not. I just need to understand things from their viewpoint. In my opinion, without that, I will not be able to enjoy the book.
My name's Victoria and I love to read! And I guess no matter how busy I am, I'll always find time to read because you can't stop a passion, can you? I love netball, especially shooting, there's just something so peaceful about it, isn't there?
I started blogging in 2011, around November. I've fallen in love with it. Blogging about books just is so fun. Of course, I haven't been the most active of bloggers due to school:( Hopefully that will change now that I'm finally free!
But above all, I love my Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior. I've put my trust in Him. Because I know that no matter what, He will never forsake me nor leave me.
