So I was reading a new book, Blood Rights, I just got as part of a 3 part series. And I like it so far. But one of the main things that stood out to me was the narration. It felt like it had a lot more personality than what I was used to. It felt like it was being told by someone other than the usual omniscient narrator who knows it all and tells it all. Here's an excerpt: It was fun to read actually. I always thought that the 3rd person narrator was to be the one who knew the whole story, but this one was tossing out judgements and insults and some swearing and even asking questions at some points about parts of the plot or character intention. They seem to be an entirely different character who's along for the ride rather than the all knowing one already knowing what's going to happen. It gives the story itself a personality. I don't wanna seem too vanilla here but this broke convention for me. I liked it and thought back to my own 3rd person narrations in which I rarely break the omniscient view and actually interact with the reader, like at all. I had this constraint on my mind that they were supposed to be strictly storytellers from an objective viewpoint. But am I wrong here? How much personality do you/should you put into 3rd person narration?
