This week, Deb at BTT asks: "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?)"
Well, if I absolutely had to pick one of those offerings over the other (yes, they are both very important), I'd definitely have to pick plot over character. Through the years, I've found that my favorite fiction is usually extremely plot-driven -- which is probably why I read so many mysteries. I love it if a book has fascinating characters, too; but my main requirement is an interesting story.
