I guess what I’m noticing is that the omniscient POV is carrying, or maybe an excuse for, that lack of depth. Connectedness in the US is a huge issue among young adults and adolescents. We have these bestsellers that we’ve seen with these issues of perspective and depth. It’d be interesting to know if it’s a reflection of our culture or perpetuating it in media. Because if the best sellers have these issues, and they are more easily adapted, they get more attention.
