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 hard as I would like the perfect book like in the question. If I had to choose it would be great characters. If I can't connect with the character the book just doesn't work for me. How did you answer this question?
