I find this so so true. I love to read and I love to write and the thing I love most about reading and writing is the characters. A good character can move you to laughter and tears. The books I’ve loved the most, I’ve loved because of the characters – Harry Potter, and the place in my heart those characters hold, for example. And the books that I found just meh or disliked were because of the characters. The Maze Runner books for example. That had a plot that was SO intriguing, that normally I would have loved. But Thomas and Theresa, it just wasn’t love. I just couldn’t bring myself to care about them, which made the books just fall flat. Character is crucial and often the hardest part of the story, but it can make such a difference.
