May 29: What is your favorite POV style? First person? Second person? Third person?
I’m a sucker for First person POV, especially when I can’t trust him (or her). I like to hear characters’ thoughts, and I UBER like being lead astray. One of my favorite books of ALL TIME (though I rarely have the available brain power and/or free notebook space to re-read it), is House of Leaves, by Mark Danielewski. It’s fun, it’s creepy, and still, after having read it several times, I haven’t decided who (or what) to believe.
I’m all for ubiquitous narrators, but there’s something just a little more believable about storytellers that can’t (or don’t) quite trust themselves.
