A good character is someone or something that you can connect with. Even if the character is the opposite of you or even someone you would normally dislike in real life you can still have great passion for the character. Books with character plot holes and missing backgrounds are bad characters, people can not connect with someone they don’t know. Books with full background stories and consistent story lines are good characters because you connect with the characters on a more personal level. I look for consistent story lines, a backstory and a likable personality. I like characters who are funny, smart,flawed,relatable, and unique! I always finish books if i like the character and i usually give up if the characters boring. And if the character is to perfect and is always making the right choice, or there always being a happy ending.
