Book Blogger Hop December 17 to 20

It's time for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

Book Blogger Hop
Today's question:

"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"

That's a crazy question. They are both equally important to a book. The best plot in the world won't be worth reading if the characters are all flat and unsympathetic, and even marvelous characters can't really save a flawed or pointless plot. That said, I tend to focus more on strong characterizations, and most of my favorite series' have well developed characters, not stereotypes or cardboard cutouts.
