There were two chapters that were more from an omniscient POV - Chapter Nine seems to head hop between just about everyone's POV. I am not sure I much liked that hopping and would like to know the justification for that style. Chapter 11 is also more omniscient - but more in a reporting format than the head hopping of chapter nine.[edited]Susan

I agree that the book flowed well with the changing POV and I also found that by switching it gave you a chance to digest what you read without getting too bogged down into one person's feelings. Jo
