The Non-Point-of-View Reaction: Reading Response Exercise #83


Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes.


Think about what you have read. Identify the point-of-view character (the character in the story whose perspective, including thoughts and feelings, is shared with the reader).


Respond to the plot, the events in the passages you just read from the point of view of a non-point-of-view character. How did this other character think and feel about the events from your reading.


Read or discuss your responses with your reading partners. What about your friends responses make you curious to maybe read their novel?
