Multiple First Person POV?
Does multiple first person POV work and can I pull it off well?
I originally planned for the entire novel to be told in first person from the male MC's perspective. However, during my outlining and scheming I've started running into areas where I think it would be much more interesting from my female MC's POV. So I started thinking... can I do both? Would it take away from the story to switch between them?
Anyone willing to offer their opinion on this? I can only think of one book I've read that had two characters narrating in first person. It worked for that book, but it was several books into a series and I already had a strong feel for the characters. So I'm just not sure.
