I agree with everything said so far! My impression was that the author was trying to tell the story from an omniscient point of view, but the boundaries kept shifting and there was therefore no clear sense of a ‘narrator’ or consistent narrative voice. Choosing an omniscient POV also seems like a strange decision when information is deliberately withheld from the reader to create suspense/surprise.
