Re: What makes a good book to you?
I like political thrillers or mystery books. I read for enjoyment so I really don't want to labor through a book, no matter how highly acclaimed it is. Give me a book that has a good flow to it with some good twists.
Some of my favorite books (authors) do a very good job of character development. If you can create a memorable and likeable character it makes reading the book much more enjoyable.
