Books with single pov have my heart <3. They are so much better than dual pov because I connect with the main character so much more. When I read dual pov books (which aren’t many), I tend to like one character over the other. I would rush to finish said character’s section to get to said favorite character section and that just takes the beauty of the story away. With single pov books, I put myself in the main character shoes which makes the story 1) flow better and 2) create a personal relationship with the reader.
I’m not bashing dual pov because when done correctly, they can really add to the whole story. My favorite series, the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, has a little dual pov mixed in toward the last two books (there are 5 books total). It added to the whole story. The first 3 books were single povs and I grew to love the main character, accomplishing the task of creating a personal relationship. When I got to the 4th book, I was dying to read in the other main character’s pov. It created a sense of anticipated longing for the dual pov. That was dual pov at its best!
So book lovers, which POV do you prefer?
