To me a character who is nuanced and has depth is far more fascinating than one who is “nice”. Nice is fine, but I can take it or leave it, depending on other character traits.

I’ve talked to people who don’t want to read a book about someone they wouldn’t be friends with. Depends on the reader, I guess.
