Reading.

I found a book awhile ago that I really enjoy, and so when the same author wrote a new book, I bought that one too, expecting to like it just as much. While the story is still good, the point of view is different, and I can't get into the story as much. Point of view has never really made a difference to me until this happened, but now I think I'm quite biased.


Note: In general, I'm referring to narratives (fiction or nonfiction). I think it's kind of a given that nonfiction like encylopedias and newspapers are written in third person.
