+++ELEMENTS OF FICTION+++

42. What's the most important element of a novel? Plot? Characterization? Style? Themes? Happy ending?


This is such a complex question!
it all depends on how you read a novel and why  you read it. I have suffered through a boring plot because i liked the style and vice versa quite often suffered through bad style because of a good plot, a good characterisation really helps. the happy end is apreciated but not neccessary ;)

43. What kind of plot interests you the most?

crime plots are alway interresting or the "suffer" plots

44. What kind of characters usually appeal to you?

The broody types, the weird types, and *sigh* the crippled ones.... characters who have to struggle, again a good characterisazion is very important!!!!

45. What is your favorite book overall?

Uh i don't think i have such a thing. there are books i really liked and am still very fond of but there is no overall book.
top on my list are
"was mich fertig macht ist nicht sdas leben sondern die tage dazwischen"
"south of the border, west of  the sun"
"peel my love like an onion"
"Eileens geheimniss"
"das gefrohrene licht"


+++PASS IT ON+++

or mark haddon or jasper fforde we'll see :)

49. Is there a book you would recommend to everyone on your friends list?

Not right now, no. i'm always careful with recommending books
