Story From Myra's Point Of View

Post by Zain Farough » 31 Oct 2017, 10:17

Would it be interesting if the story would be from Myra's point of view. And it would have been based on her in the starting of the book rather then Tom.

Maybe it would not be that interesting but she did interact with Sarah a lot more throughout the book.

It could be interesting depending on how it's written. You can put a lot of thought and personality in characters when you change perspectives.

I think it would have been limiting. Especially on the part bout Ruth and Becky.

I think it would have been a little difficult to understand the story of Sarah without the involvement of Tom. However, I really like Myra and William so I would be happy to see another story that focuses on them.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

I think the story would miss some important things because we would have lost everything about Becky and Ruth, and the abuse problem.

Myra's viewpoint would indeed be interesting to read more of. Tom as a starting point highlights his importance in Strong Heart's story.

I agree that her presence was essential in Strong Heart's journey.

I agree that an author's flair is tested and proven in the way the complicated becomes interesting, riveting, engaging, intriguing yet still comprehensible, among others.

I agree that the author really had and justified in his reasons for choosing things to be so.

I agree that Myra's (and William's) roles were relevant and essential in the story. Tom's part was made crucial, too.

True. We all could see the author's reasons.

I think it was better the way it was, even though I liked Myra as a character. Somehow, I just think her character would have been less compelling as the lead in the story.

Would be hard to say. The circumstances would probably have to change.
