Relatable?

Post by christie_lynn33 » 03 Jan 2018, 14:24

Do you feel like the characters in this book were relatable? If yes, who did you relate to the most? If no, why not? Would you change anything about the characters to make them more relatable?

Did I find the characters personally relatable? No. Pretty much all of the characters are consumed by ambition. Many are also consumed by greed as well. I'm not a particularly ambitious person - certainly nowhere near their level - and I would like to believe that I'm not greedy either. I'm much more people-oriented than goal-oriented. But I imagine that the characters would be relatable to someone who had more in common with them or knew people like them. I typically surround myself with Type B personalities, so I don't really know anyone like them either.
