Point of View

This novel is told from the point of view of a third person omniscient narrator. Main characters of focus are Brady and Hodges but the author often focuses on no character in particular, allowing the reader to know the thoughts and actions of all characters involved. By using the third person point of view, King is able to tell his story from all angles. The reader gets input from Brady as well as from Hodges. If the story were told from a first person point of view not only would the reader not know what was going on in all of the characters minds, he would also get attached to one character. By letting an omniscient narrator tell the story, it remains plot driven instead of having the reader get too attached to any one character.
