Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – Do characters all have to be super heroes, brave, unfallible and larger than life? Honouring realism and the right to be human by Christoph Fischer

I was just writing about this- though not so nearly in depth, in an upcoming book review for The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss.
As far as I’m concerned, character flaws bring more depth, creating character, rather than archetypes, which I think most readers see right through. I’d be curious to hear characters you love who don’t have flaws… Either way, great thoughts from Christoph and Sally 🙂
