Haruki Murakami tells his novel "1Q84" from the point of view of the third person, which enables a continual narration in one voice spanning the distance between several distinct characters. This provides the reader an omniscience that is not afforded the characters, so the reader is able to understand things at a faster pace than the characters do. This also allows Murakami supernatural extensions, such as describing scenes involving the appearance of Little People when human characters have left the room, are sleeping, or are not present.
