Arrow of God

Analysis: Narrator Point of View
Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?
Third Person (Omniscient)
The narrator has the god-like ability to see into the minds of every character in the book. It jumps from one person's head to another's, often within the same chapter. The story is primarily about Ezeulu, and we spend more time in his head than any other character's head, but the narrator can conveniently pick and choose any character's point of view.
