This is when more than one voice is telling the story. Different points of view of characters are given.
this for me is the easiest style of storytelling and writing as i find it more interesting getting inside multiple characters head and seeing the same situation from different points of view.
- A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan, rotates narrators and perspectives with each chapter, including one that is formatted to look like a footnote heavy article in Details magazine, and a 76-page PowerPoint presentation.
- The first two Dexter novels are written entirely in the first-person, from Dexter’s POV. Round three mixes it up when the reader gets intermittent third-person visits from Dex’s stalker.
- Some chapters of American Psycho are told in the third person, as opposed to the first-person narrative of the rest of the novel.
