What's a novel anyway?

Definition

A novel is a long book that tells a story of made-up characters and events. It is written in prose and contains a conflict, or main problem, that the characters try to solve.

Name a novel that has been made into a movie.

Think about the best book you have ever read.

Which character did you think was most important? Why?


What is the central conflict?


How did the novel begin?


Where and when does it take place?


What is your favorite part of the novel?


Whose perspective is the novel written from? Who is telling the story?


  • First person-One of the characters tells the story using "I".
  • Second person-The story is addressed to you. (rare)
  • Third person-The story is not told by a character.
  • Multiple perspectives-More than one of the above is used
