A Good Story or Good Writing

Booking it Through Thursdays asks:

Which is more important a good story or good writing?

I have to say to me they sort of go hand in hand but if I had to choose one I would go with a good story.  I can get past some icky text if the story grabs me but if the story sucks even if the writing is superb its still a boring sucky book.  So I guess a good story is more important to me.


  1. Yes, I tend to agree. :)


  2. Hello! Thanks for the visit to my blog!

    But bad language/writing is much more common than a bad plot, IMHO. For example, most of the modern books I've read seem to suffer from the lack of a good editor. But then I mostly read Classics or Mysteries. My opinion may be outdated anyway. :-)
