An Abundance of Katherines
by John Green
Analysis: Narrator Point of View
Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?
This story might belong to Colin, but we've got a narrator around to be our personal tour guide through his mind. Good thing too, since Colin likes to zone out of a conversation and take a little trip down memory lane… okay, more like Katherine lane. Colin's always weaving in and out of the past, but we've got out trusty narrator to fill us in on the details about what's going on all around Colin. Colin's mind is free to wander since we've got our narrator here to move the plot along and keep up rooted in the present.
