The point of view is third person, from a multiple person standpoint. In fact the book has a strong quality of being event-driven, and thereby maintaining a continuity, although the point of view, from the third person, is from many different people. In the beginning section of the book, in the scenes of Joe's escape from Prague, the point of view is exclusively from Joe. In the first chapter, when Joe is thrown by Sammy's mother, into Sammy's bed, the point of view is from the inner thoughts of Sammy. The same is true of Part I, Chapter 4, which is a flashback of Sammy's childhood together with his father, the Mighty Molecule.
