This week’s musing…
Do you have a preference between “person” in the books you read? Do you prefer third-person to first-person? Or don’t you care? And, why?
It doesn't really matter to me. Each format has an advantage to it. Most of the cozy mysteries I read are told in the first-person. It gives the reader a chance to know what motivates the character to do the things he or she does.
OTOH, third-person gives the readers a chance to see what's going on beyond the main character.
Honestly, IMO, it depends on the story. If it's a good story, I'll read it regardless of which format it's written in.
