I WONDER… Wednesday – Alternative Main Character POV
Hello, my lovies 🙂 And welcome to a mid-week feature, called “I Wonder…”. Basically, this is my chance to chat with you all about something I’ve been pondering. Every week’s topic will be book/publishing/author related in some way. I’m looking for feedback on these posts… so I’d love to hear your thoughts. (It’s lonely over here in my little corner of cyberspace!!)
Hello all 🙂
I just saw a picture on FB that made me laaauuuuggghhh!!!! But it also got me thinking about books I’ve read, and alteranative points of view.
Sooooo… first… how funny would THAT be??
However, while it may be funny to think about Draco as the narrator for the series, it would have been a VERY different story. And that got me thinking… if some of the books I loved had been written from a different character’s POV, would they have been as good? How would the stories have changed?
My book club is reading Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series right now… so the idea of reading that series from Rick’s POV, instead of Jane’s is *interesting*, but we’d miss SO much. However… from Jane’s POV, Rick has a LOT of secrets, so having access to those would create a whole NEW set of circumstances to drive the story. (We wouldn’t know about Beast, though… at least not for a while, lol. And it looks like there ARE some novellas from Rick’s POV, so I’ll actually get an answer to my question soon!!)
So… I’m wondering… which books would YOU be interested in reading from an alternative character point of view?? And how do you think it would change the storyline??
