  1. You have so many interesting ways of looking at books, Callum! I’m very fond of the Kate Daniels books by Ilona Andrews. Kate’s world is fascinating, her skills are impressive yet she is humble, and her sense of humor has me laughing throughout the novels and novellas. It’s first-person narrative done right.

  2. I am currently reading Room and I think it is a wonderful book. Thinking about unique narrators I would probably have to choose Death in The Book Thief 🙂

    • I’d quite like to re-read Room actually, seeing as the new movie adaptation is getting such great reviews.

      The Book Thief is a brilliant suggestion! That’s another one I should probably re-read sometime 🙂

      • I saw Room and was blown away. I thought Jacob Tremblay was exceptional. I have done this the wrong way round but I figured as the author wrote the screenplay too it was bound to be pretty true 🙂

  3. I’ve read 3 of the books mentioned here—The Enchanted being one of them, which was an interesting and unique way, and something I really enjoyed. The only book that I can think of is The Bees, which as you can probably tell, is from the POV of a bee. Very bizarre but different read!

  4. I still need to read The Girl On The Train, haha. Unfortunately, it’s at the very bottom of my book stack too so not the easiest to access, but I hope to get around to it soon!

  5. Stories with unreliable or in some way limited narrators have become some of my favorites. In a way they’re more realistic, because we’re all unreliable narrators telling things as we see them not necessarily as they are.
