This week I want to know if you prefer reading books that are in:
A single character’s perspective
One of my favourites author is Jodi Picoult and I think that pretty much every single one of her books has each characters point of view. I love the notion you can get all points of view, which means you can see all parts of the story. Even with the characters that are deemed the “villain” at the start of the story, you start reading it from their point of view and you feel, sometimes, sorry for them and see they are the victims of a much larger scheme.
So I would have to say that I enjoy a multiple perspective story. Although the only downside really is that, depending on the writer, the story can get confusing. I have noticed that with Jodi Picoult books, depending which which character they are focusing on at the time. They will write that particular character in a specific font. They are written in chapters, but with each characters “chapter” comes a specific font.
