Curious Question by Linda S. Glaz
I had a great question come up at a recent conference and am curious how readers, mostly, would view it.
Does anyone remember the movie from days way gone by, Look Who’s Talking? A romance that included a baby’s POV. The series ended with the third installment, Look Who’s Talking Now. This last offering included the POVs of the two pets.
And herein lies the question. How do readers feel about internal dialogue from a pet? I didn’t have an answer for her other than it didn’t work well for me, but that’s only one opinion. And therefore, far too subjective.
So…I’m curious. How do you feel, as readers, about an animal’s POV being included in a work of fiction?
I'd love to get some dialogue going here.
I thought it was a very interesting question.
