Look at you

I think you meant, "Boy, stop giving false information. You don't even know how to spell correctly." Before you try to insult someones spelling look at your own first.

As for me and my house by Sinclair Ross

This is frustrating part because I never learnt to do all kinds of book report in high time. What's a point of view in the book? Please, help me.

Hello

What is the point of view in the short story "Hills with White Elephants"?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 02/07/2014 - 00:15
If I remember correctly...

I believe it was third person? Been a while since I read that. HOWEVER: if ever you want to find out the point of view, here's a little guide to help you figure it out:

First person: First person is used when the main character is telling the story. This is the kind that uses the "I" narrator.

Second person: Second person point of view is generally only used in instructional writing. It is told from the perspective of "you".

Third person POV is used when your narrator is not a character in the story. Third person uses the "he/she/it" narrator and it is the most commonly used POV in writing.

Or, simply search "how to tell point of view" on google. What's written above was taken from the first result I got from this search. I'd advise looking that up to find out a bit more and to see some useful examples.

Good luck!

A good point of view book is

A good point of view book is Flowers For Algernon. The whole story is completely throughout journal entries that Charlie, the main character, writes.

I object!

Princess Diaries is not the only popular teen book series! In fact, I haven't read a single book myself >:(

i object it didn't say the

i object it didn't say the ONLY popular teen book series it just said popular book series; as in a wide field of different series and the author of this article picked one

I Object To Your Objection!

It never said that Princess Diaries was the "only" popular teens book, it just said "a". And even if it said that, there is no reason to be upset. Seriously...

i object to your statment

Never was it stated in the example that the Princess Diaries was the "only," according to you, popular teen series.

Popular Teen Series

Seriously... Popularity of books are not based on YOUR likes/ dislikes. It stems from what THE MAJORITY of teen society is reading at the time. You are not everyone, you are your own person. Chill Your Calm. Whoever said it was popular was probably right, even if it's not you favorite. Let people have their own opinions.

another example is that of

another example is that of the books by Charles Dickens e.g Hard Times, the narrator is mainly in the third person point of view

Example

An example of point of view is any good Sherlock Holmes book because it is from Watson's point of view.

2nd person

The second person view, while rarely used in literature, is often found in role playing games. Where the 'dungeon master' or game master tells the players what is happening to them.
"You walk quietly through the abandoned mine. The smell of rotting wood meets you nose, you can hear water somewhere off in the distance. The beams creak as you pass beneath them. A choice lies before you, to turn left or continue going straight."

Grammar

"Grammar" was correct, you were wrong to say "you're" unless the words "your" and "you're" have suddenly switched meanings or are you confused?

2nd person

2nd person is also used in self help books where its talks to you about ways you could improve whatever problem you are seeking help for.
