Point of View

The novel is written in the third person omniscient point of view. The author uses multiple characters as his narrators, from Jake to Lettie to Wade to Ian. Most of the important characters have a go at narrator in this novel, allowing the reader to see all events in the plot of this novel through multiple eyes.

The point of view of this novel works because it allows the reader to see multiple aspects of the story, not just what one characters sees or does. The reader is allowed to follow Jake through the trial, feel Lettie’s confusion after Seth’s death, and the greed that motivates Seth’s children. By using the omniscient point of view, the author gives the reader a well-rounded story with a great deal of detail into every aspect of the plot.
