Many novels use a technique where from the perspective of the narrator tells a bit of the story if its a bit of the ending or the mood of the story. e.g. is in lemony snickets book the bad beginning where the narrator in a paragraph in chapter one tells the reader to put the book down if you like a story of happiness and friendship. Similar in a clockwork orange where alex sort of jokes with the reader about his death and how would he possibly tell the story if i your brilliant narrator were to die. Just wondering if anyone knew a little more about this and if it was a good idea for me to add to my first person hero/light fantasy series?
