Point of View
First The story is told from the I viewpoint.
This point of view brings the reader up close and
personal with the narrator. The reader can
quickly identify and derive pleasure from
experiencing the events in the book as if they
are seeing them through the eyes of the main
character. Third Person LimitedEverything is
seen through the main characters eyes and in
past tense. A book written in third person has
the phrases he said, he thought, all coming
from the same persons head. The reader sees,
thinks and feels only what the main character
experiences. There are no shifts at any other
time to other characters thoughts or emotions.
Many detective novels are written in this simple,
straightforward tense. Third Person
Omniscient The author takes a panoramic, birds
eye view of the characters and in describing the
overall picture. The story is not shown through
the eyes of any one character, but an invisible,
all-knowing, all-seeing narrator. Information
