Stories are only interesting to me if the characters in them are interesting.
You can have an interesting setting, but a setting isn’t really anything without characters.
You can put interesting characters in any setting and have it work.
@Morgan but what about "the setting as a character" something I don't think I've ever experienced or appreciated.
