Let’s Talk Bookish: Plot or Characters: Which is more important and why?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion hosted by Rukky @Eternity Books where a bookish topic is discussed each week. This week’s topic is: Plot or Characters: Which is more important and why?

Both plot and characters are essential to a story. Plot, of course, is really important. Without a plot, there wouldn’t be a story and everything would be really boring. Characters are also really important. Characters make stories personal, and relatable.

A very good plot, however, can make mediocre characters look better, and the overall book pretty good. I don’t think that it works the other way around. A book with amazing, detailed characters is amazing, but if the plot is only okay, the book isn’t that fun to read.

So, in conclusion, while character development is important, I think that overall, a good plot is more beneficial to a good book.
