What type of point-of-view do you like?

First person, second person or third person?

For first person point-of-view, an example is The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Example of the third person point-of-view are the Harry Potter books, and Dan Brown' novels.

Mas prefer ko ang mga books na nasa third person POV.

    Pareho ko gusto, depende sa mood. (At may mood mood pang nalalaman.)

    Sa first person kasi, I like the feeling that the narrator is directly talking to the reader, parang nagkukwento lang na kabarkada. Kung magaling yung pagkakasulat, madali mong nararamdaman yung feeling ng narrator, mas nakikita at nakikilala mo ang character. Lalo pa kung unreliable yung narrator, may level of deception in terms of character, and that also opens up possibilities of twists in terms of storytelling.

    Sa third person naman, there's this feeling of being impersonal, kasi may all-knowing, all-seeing someone na nagkukwento sa yo. More or less objective ang pagkukwento sa ganitong paraan, nakikita mo kung ano ang nakikita ng lahat ng characters sa iisang eksena. Meron din third-person limited, na...well, limitado lang sa kung ano ang nakikita ng main character/POV. Depende talaga sa estilo ng manunulat yung galing ng pagpapatakbo sa kwento, ke first or third person ang gamit.

    Both first and third person POV are pretty common.

    Second person POV on the other hand are hardly used as a narrative technique considering that such POV may sound to imposing and usually the narrator has some degree of authority over his intended readers. Great examples would be: 'choose-your-own-adventure' and last year's The Night Circus by E.Morgenstern.
