July 17: How many characters do you like to meet and get to know in a book? Do you prefer a book with just a protagonist and a handful of central characters or do you like to meet lots of characters?
I have a confession to make. I really, honestly, don’t actually care that much about supporting characters. If you’ve got two or three multidimensional, well-developed characters doing interesting things that’s plenty. I’ll use the Mistborn series as an example. I LOVE Kelsier. I LOVE Vin. I even sort of got attached to Sazed & Elend. I realize that the rest of the guys were all important – and more developed than most secondary characters due to the Awesome that is Brandon Sanderson – but I promise you I’d have to look on the Wiki to remember any of their names.
