    I love the main character (especially a girl) with a very strong personality. A character who never give up till she gets what she thinks is right. That's what I called strong character.

    ReplyDelete
  67. For me, I always love a girl in a book who can stand on her own with the help of others. I can't stand when I read books and the girl character can't do anything or her whole world becomes about the boy. When a book can have a female character that kicks ass, gets the boy, and still can be able to fend on her own then she's pretty kick-ass for me.

    ReplyDelete

  69. A strong character is one you can easily empathize with. If you don't want to journey with a character through an entire novel because you feel no empathy, then it doesn't matter how well the author describes the setting or writes a suspenseful plot, for me it's all about the characters.

    I love the main character (especially a girl) with a very strong personality. A character who never give up till she gets what she thinks is right. That's what I called strong character.

    ReplyDelete
  67. For me, I always love a girl in a book who can stand on her own with the help of others. I can't stand when I read books and the girl character can't do anything or her whole world becomes about the boy. When a book can have a female character that kicks ass, gets the boy, and still can be able to fend on her own then she's pretty kick-ass for me.

  69. A strong character is one you can easily empathize with. If you don't want to journey with a character through an entire novel because you feel no empathy, then it doesn't matter how well the author describes the setting or writes a suspenseful plot, for me it's all about the characters.
