Paying close attention to a character’s words and deeds, as well as to the narrator’s description, gives readers a better understanding of their personality. Some books have an omniscient third-person narrator who tells the reader exactly what to think. Others are told in the first person from the point of view of one particular character, and in these the narrator is themselves the protagonist. In these the reader feels a deeper empathy, although what is in the book is limited to what the narrator can themselves see.
