Like a lot of readers I know, I sometimes comment on an author’s “voice,” usually to say I like it. But to be honest, I’m not quite sure what I mean when I say that. (I’d be curious to hear what the rest of you mean). I guess I mean “narrative voice,” which includes but I think is also more than “the narrator’s voice.” In a first-person narrative, that should be believable as the voice of the narrating character. In third person, it’s more complicated to decide who’s speaking, whom that voice belongs to. And where does the sense of “voice” come from?
