I mean adult in the innocent, non-porn sense. On my current WIP it has transpired that of the several POVs I intended to use, my child character's POV is most suitable in many circumstances (for a variety of reasons I won't get into). So I was trying to think if there are many books aimed for adults from a child's POV. I haven't researched this but the following instantly sprang to mind: - To Kill a Mockingbird or Lord of the Flies (is this omniscient?), which everyone reads in their lower teens regardless of the market they were aiming for. Lord of the Rings. Hobbits are children for all intents and purposes (and thinking about this it may be omniscient). But again it is one of those novels people tend to read at a fairly young age. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Life of Pi but these have strong gimmicks (wrong word I know), which tend to filter the POV. and a whole plethora of children's and YA books that adults read, but aren't marketed at them (or are indirectly marketed at them). Can a child's POV realistically work in an adult novel?
