Top 5 Wednesday:
Books with Multiple POVs
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
This book is strange, but good. It takes place in London and London Below; the London almost no one ever sees. You follow many different characters’s point of views that are after the same thing but with different motives. The POV will change in the middle of a chapter, and that threw me off. Once I figured out what Gaiman was doing, it was a lot easier to follow.
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
This was my first Brandon Sanderson book, and it will not be the last. This book follows three main characters and perspectives – a prince, princess, and a priest. Each has their own agenda on how they want Elantris should be ran. Sanderson has written one of my favorite female characters in Sarene. She knows how to get things done and doesn’t apologize for it. This book has some unsuspected character development which I really liked. The magic system in this world is also kind of awesome. Check it out if you’re a fantasy fan.
A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) by George R.R. Martin
I don’t think this needs any explanation. All the point of views.
Every Day by David Levithan
Technically this book is told in the perspective of A, but since A takes over people’s bodies, it’s also their perspective in a way. That’s my story, and I’m stickin to it. (Also, this book is flippin fantastic. It’s a must read.)
Under the Dome by Stephen King
I have to admit, I have no finished this book. I started it years ago, but I put it down for whatever reason and never picked it back up. This has POVs of people in the community that the dome is over. If you haven’t seen the tv show, at least do that. It’s a bit addicting. The book, however, is way more graphic and disturbing.
Legend Series by Marie Lu
The perspective of him and her. The perfect combination, knowing both sides of love, hate, regrets, and more.
Unwind Series by Neal Shusterman
Not just multiple POVs, but multiple stories crashing into each other. Characters you never knew how they were going to meet or how they would transform by each other’s situation. Check out the full series review.
Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
LOVED the use of these POVs. Characters constantly running into each other when they didn’t even know who they were, making you go OMG ITS HER ITS HER!! Over and Over again. Check out this Cinder review.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Nothing about the POVs of this book really stick out to me, but all and all a great book. And can’t wait for Rose Society coming SOOOON. Check out the review for this book!
