Playing Editor - Booking Through Thursday

This week, we are asked to fill in the blanks in:

_____would have been a much better book if ____.

Hmmm... I'm not sure I read a book I wanted to change in quite a while. If I had to, I'd say that

Children of Men would have been a much better book if it belonged to a different genre. What I mean is that it was SUCH a good story idea that I think it would have been better developed as a 'regular' character-focused novel rather than a thriller. I think much more could have been done with the idea.

I really can't think of anything else. I don't have the reflex to want to change storylines, I kind of just go with the flow.

I haven't read Children of Men, but I would prefer a character-focused novel over a thriller anyway.

A lot of us do the "go with the flow" plan. :-)

I always go for character oriented books. Even it is a romance!

Here is my BTT post!

Character-oriented is always better for me!

I need to stop reading other people's answers to this for a while, I already stumbled on two spoilers! :-(

Go with the flow is a good plan.

Going with the flow is good, although I do sometimes wish for different endings
