I am planning on writing a novel (as soon as I'm ready revising this one) that tells the story about how 8 different people react to the same event. It will also contain more about their lives to know why they react like they do, but I'm wondering if it would be too confusing having to deal with that many mcs, since they are all equal, no one is more important than the others. Do I have to make one or two more important for the story to have a couple main-main characters or could I leave it as I first thought? Personally I have never read a novel with that many people to keep track of so I don't know if it has been done before and with what result. what are your thoughts on this?
