Lately I’ve not really been reading much, mainly because I have been ill and had no concentration for anything what-so-ever. I’ve managed to finish War on the Margins this week, and things are looking up, I’m about halfway through The QI book of General Ignorance. Still my blog is a little quiet, and I didn’t participate in the hop at all last week.
This week I wanted to pop my head back in despite the quietness of my blog. Still have a look at my review of War on the Margins, and further back if you haven’t visited my blog before. Leave a comment somewhere and I will make sure I pay you a visit too.
On to this week’s question:
“What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?”
This is hard! Like Jennifer it’s the plot that originally makes me pick up a book, and a plot which takes too long to get going, or doesn’t interest me will make me give up on a book. I can’t say I’ve ever not finished a book because I don’t like the characters but if I can’t attach with the characters then I find it difficult to really enjoy the book. This was my main problem with War on the Margins, the plot interested me but generally I didn’t care about the characters.
New since my last hop:
Happy hopping everyone 🙂
