Scroll down to discover how many named characters there are in novels such as Shogun by James Clavell, Bleak House by Charles Dickens, A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth, The Stand by Stephen King and of course Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.And while of course it’s the quality of characters and not the quantity that counts, if you can deliver dozens of unique characters that make your story sing, have at it!bookswmostcharacters
