Point of View

The story is told in the third person omniscient point of view with a focus solely on Edward. The reader sees Edward and his interactions with others, but the reader also gets to see Edward's thoughts. This is effective, as it is the only way to know what Edward wants to communicate to the reader. The focus of the novel is always on current events with Edward briefly thinking about the past in various situations. The story is not told from any other view point, although there are a number of other characters in the novel. The point of view is limited as Edward not only cares about himself throughout much of the novel, but because due to the fact that he is inanimate, he is unable to move freely.
