Before I begin, please know this is completely my opinion. If it offends anyone, I am very sorry.
Since I have been reading so many books with very diverse opinions on my part, I started thinking about what I think makes a great book and a terrible book.
I think a great book is not only the plot and the twists and what happens, but also the characters and how much you get to know and be there with them, or, in some cases, in their shoes. I personally believe that a great character is someone who becomes your friend throughout a book. Or your enemy. But someone you really get to know or be. You can know them as a good person or a bad one, but you should be able to feel their presence, in a way. Like you really know them.
Plots and what happens are very important, too. I think that a book should make you feel differant emotions. Not just all happy-go-lucky or sad and depressed, but a mix. But that also depends on the genre of book. A horror story should make you fel those in a differant way then a romance.
So what do you think makes a great book or a terrible one? I would love to know what you think.
