Do you have a preference between “person” in the books you read? Do you prefer third-person to first-person? Or don’t you care?

And … why??

  1. I’ve been thinking about this one lately; here’s MY BTT POST

  2. Happy Thursday, everyone! Answer at Aquatique. Cheers.

  3. The novels I enjoy the most seem to be written in the first-person. It’s not a case of decided preference on my part: I don’t regard the first superior as superior than third person. It’s just that my favorite novels happen to be first-person accounts — like Jayber Crow. Take the works of John Grisham — I’ve read all of his fiction, but my favorite two books are The Rainmaker and The Last Juror. Both just happen to be first person..

  4. For me, first person novels are so easy to fall into because they seem so immediate. Great question!

  5. I don’t have a preference. If I have to pick, I’ll prefer mystery in first-person and literary fiction third-person. My full answer is posted on the blog.
