Question of the Week: How important is good writing to you? In an ideal world, a book would be beautifully written AND have great character development, plot, etc. But in the real world, which do you prefer: (1) Great characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing?
This is very difficult question, however I would much rather read book with amazing characters with superb plot than one that’s lacking in good writing. Of course, there are people who would prefer better writing to developed characters, but that’s not me. Even though I like well written books, and it’s always easier to read them; if the book doesn’t possess me with its amazing story, I won’t be hooked.
I feel like that lately in the YA and NA literature there has been many great books with superb plots and characters, that might have been lacking a little in the writing style. But who cares! If the book is convincing enough for you, and you can’t put it down, I don’t think the grammatical correctness and style of writing are the first thing you would judge.
