I feel comfortable writing in 3rd person (I think that is called omniscient narrator POV?). I am struggling to learn more about POV, and trying to make my 3rd person perspective create intimacy between the reader and the characters. I've been reading Dean Koontz's Frankenstein and he has omniscient narrator (if I am using this term wrong, please correct me). He cuts the book into short chapters that each focus on a different character's POV. The chapters feature one dominant character's POV that the omniscient narrator merges with. He seems to put only very loud thoughts in italics. He doesn't do the whole, "Darren thought, I guess I will be alone tonight" The thoughts are sprinkled throughout the narration as if they are fact. Do you think that this is an effective way of drawing the reader into the character's perspective? It seems to work for me, as a reader. What are your thoughts on POV? Do you have any book suggestions so that I could learn more about how to use omniscient narrator? Do you put thoughts in italics? I put some of mine in italics, but I'm having trouble maintaining consistency in this.
