“I call it cumulative omniscient because none of the characters has the whole story, but the reader gets more of the story than any of the characters have one by one.” -- Janet Burroway in “Building from ideas, details and honesty. [The Writer, December 2009]
This is a point of view I haven’t encountered before. I’m not sure what the difference is between this and writing individual chapters from each characters’ P.O.V. in third person. Perhaps if I read the book I’ll understand. I do like the idea of each character providing the reader with his or her viewpoint on the story. If done well, the reader should have a deeper understanding of what’s going on.
