Point of View
The novel is written in the first-person point of view. The novel's main character, Wade Watts, is the narrator. The book is written almost as if an autobiography written after the fact to show the world what really happened during Wade's hunt for Halliday's egg. This allows the writer to insert important information in an authorial voice without stepping back from his main character.
The point of view of the novel is a good one for this plot because it allows the reader to gain certain knowledge without having to read very far into the novel. First, it allows the reader to know that Wade survives his fight for the egg despite the fact that several attempts are made on his life throughout the hunt. Second, it allows the reader to know that the hunt ended successfully for someone, giving hope in moments...
