Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.
How do you feel about books with multiple narrators?
I actually really like when books have different narrators, I think it's an easy way to get more of the story, especially if the book is in first person narrative. However, I think that it is really easy to do mess up having more than one POV. If you have more than one narrator you need to make sure each narrator has their own distinct voice, and that it brings something to the story. Most of the books I have read with multiple POVs do it really well, so I haven't had much issues with this method.
I think it works exceptionally well with fantasy novels with big worlds. Like with Game of Thrones for example. Because Westeros is such a large world, following characters scattered in every kingdom helps the world building and has played a big part in how the end will come together.
As long as it's being used as a tool to move the story along and it makes sense why we have more than one POV I have no problem with this way of telling a story. Sometimes there is one POV you prefer to the other, but there have been times for me where I have liked both or all the narrators. I recently read (and reviewed) a book Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst and I think she used the duel narrators really well. It helped with the story and for the readers to understand both of our main characters more.
