8 Books with Unreliable Narrators
Jane Harris wonders: can you trust what they say?
I’m very fond of the unreliable narrator in fiction: the kind of novel that creeps up on us readers and makes us begin to question what we are being told. We become obliged to look for subtext. There are all sorts of unreliable narrator, from those who simply lack self-awareness (one of my favourite character flaws, very evident in users of social media!) to those who are downright evil. This list - in no particular order - contains a broad spectrum from the simply self-deluding to the criminally insane.
