I agree with Ruan. A reader has to identify with at least one character in order to get sucked into the plot, and typically that character has to have an opponent, whether that be another character (the antagonist) or the environment (nature) or his/her own self (emotional state) or something metaphysical (god), etc.

I think it does not matter how great the plot is, if the reader doesn't feel something about the characters, whether it is empathy, disgust, love, whatever, then the plot will go nowhere.
The reader needs that affinity in order to connect with the story ...and so feel compelled to follow the plot.
