Roses are Red
The story is told in third person about many different characters. The author is all knowing about the characters, and there is nothing hidden from the reader, just from the other characters. This point of view allows the reader to visualize the characters better, because the author provides good descriptions when they are brought into the action. The point of view makes the tone of the author sound like he knows what is going on, but he doesn't want to share all of the information yet. If the point of view was in first person, you wouldn't see both sides of the plot like you do in third person. As a reader I like James Patterson's 3rd person view, because you get a sense of both sides of the story. This allows you to piece it all together, but not completely figure it out before the ending making for a great book.
