What makes a Book/Story Great?


I had this question for a long time, trying to figure out the right components to a great story. What makes a book /story  great?


This one is a no brainer as far as I am concerned the book must have action and enough drama to hold my attention. The answer to this question varies from person to person.

The book must be captivating and intriguing to say the least.

I also think that it is cool if I can relate to the main character in some way.

I like when books describe events and scenery rather than telling. If a book can show you without telling you, you have struck gold.

Well thats what I think makes a great read!

What do you think a good book or story has to incorporate?
