Jennifer Slattery, author website

One thing that stood out to me when I read this book was how real the characters felt. They were every day people. They could have been me, or my next door neighbors, or someone I saw at the home improvement store. As a writer, I want my reader to love the characters I write about, but how do I show their faults without pushing the readerΒ  away? As a reader, I have read my fair share of characters who were either perfect, which made me not like them, or actually had faults that made me put the book down.

Have you had characters rub you the wrong way?

  1. I was reading a book and the hero started using foul laungage and i burned that book!

    • I don’t like that kind of language when I’m reading either Shelia. There’s always a better way to get the point across I think. πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve read some romance novels that had wonderful plots, but I could’ve done without the sex and language. I don’t understand why a compelling plot has to be muddied up that way. There’s plenty of good romance out there that proves that it’s okay to keep it clean and still be entertaining!

    • I agree Karen. There are so many good clean romances out there that I don’t want to waste my time with those that aren’t. πŸ™‚

  3. I won a book in a giveaway, and the couple became intimate the same time they met. πŸ™

  4. I was reading a book and the male character seemed to have one thing n his mind and the language was not good either. I won the book from a contest and I donated it. Not at all what I expected. Should say it was not a christian book but an author I had heard about and wanted to see her writing style.

  5. I can’t really think of any books where I stopped reading a book because of a certain character in the book. I would stop reading a book if there was a lot of foul language or explicit sex scenes.

  6. Profanity or explicit sex will cause me to throw away a book. Neither adds anything to the story.

  7. I read a book once where the husband supposedly died and three years later when the widow was getting remarried, her husband was rescued and not actually deceased as declared. The story was written so that you felt empathetic to all three characters involved, but I predicted at 25% where the story was going and I kept putting the book down in sadness and disappointment. (Actually, I was sobbing) I wanted the vows of the marriage honored and fought for. I finished the book, but it was a gut-wrenching read for me.

    • Oh, I’m with you there Terrill. You read on, hoping and praying that it will not end the way you think it will. πŸ™
