Favorite Childhood Reread

I reread a favorite childhood book last book: The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley.

And it came to me: the book was written in a 3ed person omniscient POV.

I knew, of course, that it was written in 3rd person POV. But I haven’t read it in years and I’d somehow thought it was written it 3rd person limited.

I don’t know why. Maybe I am just so used to 3rd person limited. And back when I first read it, I didn’t know the difference between 3rd person limited and 3ed person omniscient.

The difference is so striking now, such a change from the usual stuff. It wasn’t confusing at all! But it is still as good as it was when I first read it.

I quite enjoyed it.

  1. Isn’t it fun to re-read books? I used to do that with The Thorn Birds and my Little House and Anne of Green Gables books.

    Now that I read so much that is first person or third person limited, I don’t care for third person omniscient as much. I’m glad you were still able to enjoy this one.

    Thanks for visiting The Book Connection.

  2. Wow I haven’t seen this for years, I’ll have to go dig it up somewhere and do just that. It was one of my first book reports for grade school.

  3. The only Robin McKinley book I have read is Beauty. Your post prompted me to look up the viewpoint of it. That book was written in first person. The pace was a little slow, but the story also mesmerized me.

Say something and make my day!
