How many "characters" are there?

I've read two of the books on the long list for the Booker Prize, which is two more than I have usually read. I liked one (Saturday) and disliked the other (Never Let Me Go). I thought I'd go for a third, and as I perused the list I spotted In The Fold by Rachel Cusk. I've read and enjoyed other books of hers so I went to Amazon to check it out, and the editorial review contained this phrase:

"While there is little 'plot' to speak of..."
