Which better brings a character to life: the skilled performance of a master actor or the flowing words of an author’s quill? That’s the topic we brought Wes back a third time to discuss. While TV and films let us literally see what is happening to a character, only in prose can we easily hear the character’s internal thoughts. Movies and shows might have more explosions, but books can have more long-winded monologues. Which medium will come out ahead? What does it mean to truly know a character? Why are we still talking about Snape? You’ll have to listen to find out.
