I know that this is a much maligned POV, but damnit, I love writing it. For the uninitiated, objective POV is where the 'narrator' stays firmly out of the heads of the characters, only relaying information which would be obvious to a present audience (like in a play or movie, hence its other names of dramatic and cinematic). Basically everything I write falls into the POV, and while I'm not too worried about the fact that it seems to be so wildly unpopular, I am a little confused by it. There's so much potential for subtlety, and I've never been too convinced by the notion that readers need to be inside the head of characters to care about them. The other pitfall I've heard of is that the reader simply won't understand the characters' emotions, something which was dispelled for me when my girlfriend (not the most unbiased source, I know, but she's honest) commented that she understood a particular character's actions and feelings perfectly, when the scene in question was little more than her standing on a riverbank, trying to get a hold of another character via phone. The overall context of the previous few scenes helped with that, of course, but they were all presented the same way. Do people hate reading this? Writing it? Has anyone else given it a go?
