I'm currently in the process of rewriting my 400+ page novel, changing it from 3rd person POV from two character's perspectives, to 1st person perspective, all from my heroine's viewpoint. This is quite the endeavor, but I - and my critique partner - agreed that this is the way to go with this story, especially since it's helping me cut word count and get deeper into the character's POV.
Now, the reason I'm making this post, is because I'd like to see what your views are on POV. Which one do you prefer? Do you think it depends on age group? Would you only read a YA or Upper YA book in first person POV, but be willing to read a pure adult novel in 3rd? Would you ever not read a book because of the POV it is in?
I'd really love to read some of your toughts. This whole process is a pain in the tush, but I feel I'm learning even more about a character I thought I knew as well as myself.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
