Book Blogger Hop, December 17 – 20, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors and sharing our love for literature.

This week’s question is “What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?”


It is impossible to decide between the importance of the plot and the characters. The plot is what grabs my attention first, but it looses the appeal if there are no interesting well developed characters, and vice versa: intriguing and complex characters can still not make up for a bad plot or lack of it. So, an enjoyable book must have both strong plot and characters. 


  1. Joining you from over at the Book Blogger Hop, it's nice to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit.

  2. Stopping by to say Hi! I agree that this was a difficult decision. In the end I choose plot, but went back and forth about twelve times. By the end of the hop I might change my mind again… Stop by and say hi when you get a chance!

  3. HI new follower, I am torn between the two , love a good plot but awesome characters grab my attention. Happy Holidays

  4. I'm hopping by. I agree both are important. But I'm much more forgiving of a weak plot than of poorly developed characters. So I voted for characters being more important.

  5. 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.
