Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading
This week's musing:
Do you prefer character-driven stories, or plot-driven stories?
Ultimately I prefer character-driven stories, because when a character is really great and has really admirable qualities they make me want to learn more about them and sometimes I want to be more like them. A good example would have to be Tris from Divergent. She was so brave and so driven I just fell in love with her personality and her flaws. She was just so real. Another example would have to be Jack from Blood Red Road. Right away I fell in love with Jack's snarky attitude and caring demeanor, I wanted him in my life right away. However, plot-driven stories also grab me. Sometimes I can overlook a poorly written character if the plot is fast paced and exciting. Either way, if a story is lacking in both quality characters and plot I probably won't read it. I don't know who would haha.
