Narrator Point of View

Third-Person (Omniscient

Life After Life follows Ursula's many lives. When she dies, the narrative ends with her, and it begins again with her birth. However, she's not the narrator. The narrator is someone outside the story who can dip into almost anyone's inner thoughts, at any time they choose. For instance, we see how Sylvie feels toward Izzie (she hates her) and how Pamela feels about Maurice (exasperated by his immaturity). Just like we get to see World War II from a variety of vantage points, so it goes with the plot, thanks to this narration style.
