Third person multiple POV works well for me as reader in Janette Turner Hospital's Due Preparations for the Plague. From the first word we are plunged into Lowell's world with its sights and sounds, intuitions and mixture of real and imagined awarenesses. Later she takes us into various other people's worlds.
On a much lighter scale, Ashley Hay's A Hundred Small Lessons gives us a lot of deep POV for several third person characters, but at times I think she slips into omniscient author. On the whole, it works though.
Thanks for those examples, Jeanette. I've read 'The Railwayman's Wife' by Ashley Hay, but haven't read that one. I'm doing a post next week on omniscient POV and it is sometimes tricky to work out if an author's using omniscient or if they're head-hopping in third-person. Though a number of authors have melded the two. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try omniscient for a longer piece. I don't think it's one for the faint-hearted. Thanks for stopping by.
Your next post sounds interesting - and a bit daunting.
I'm a bit daunted by it too - LOL
