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, since I have to choose one, I choose plot. I feel that if a plot is going along at some wonderful rate than I can ignore most unfleshed and unwanted characters. I also believe that a really great character can't really save a story. There are some wonderful characters in Vanity Fair, but you aren't going to see me talking about the book in a positive manner; the plot is so boring.
