Best Answer

First person point of view is very effective when writing because it allows readers to understand what a character is thinking and feeling and to follow that emotional roller-coaster alongside them.

It can often be difficult to describe how another person is feeling, and it can sometimes make books feel disjointed and less 'readable'. Reading in first person allows readers to completely see themselves in the characters place, and look through their eyes, which can be a much more engaging tool and experience. (Twilight and The Hunger Games are both extremely popular and are both written in first person from the protagonists point of view).

Many books switch points of view between two characters from chapter to chapter or part to part to show all the ranges of emotion between characters during a time of conflict. Making the book more dynamic and adding interest for the readers.

It is a more immediate type of story, as if the narrator is talking directly to the reader.

First person POV is a more intimate type of narrative where the reader is inside the narrator's head, hearing their thoughts and emotions.
