The book’s shifting point of view is one of its most notable stylistic elements. Much of the narrative – about four-fifths – is narrated from the first person, past tense point of view of protagonist Andrew Bankson. The remaining fifth of the story is narrated from two other points of view. The more significant of these is that of Nell, writing in her journal, a narrative perspective that takes the reader a little further into the heart of a very complicated character without giving away everything about her. The second point of view in this final fifth portion of the book is that of an omniscient, third person narrator still focused on Nell – or, more accurately, Nell’s relationships with the men in her life.
