I Heard the Owl Call My Name is told by a third person omniscient narrator, from the point of view of many characters. The reader learns how each one views certain happenings in the village and is lead to compare attitudes and reactions. Because of this approach, the reader actually knows more than any individual in the story and at times is lead to anticipate the actions or reactions of a character to a situation. This approach draws the reader into the story, getting them more involved with the lives of the characters.
