Point of View

This novel is told from varying points of view. Each chapter focuses on a different character in. Ghost Bird, Control, Cynthia, Saul, and a Biologist are the primary focus of each chapter.

Each chapter focuses on one character and their assessment of their situation, but is told for the most part in first person. The only digression from this is when the director is speaking about something that she did in the past. In these chapters she addresses herself in the second person, as if she is reminding another version of herself how she acted or felt.

Language and Meaning

Language and meaning are advanced in this novel, and should be attempted for those that read on a collegiate level. This is due in large part to the upper level vocabulary, psychological and scientific terminology, as well as deeply philosophical and esoteric in nature.
