  1. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux: It has a Prologue in which the author as the narrator claims that the Opera Ghost was real and relates how he went about investigating the history of Eric and the other characters, and then describes the Paris Opera House. The book ends with an Epilogue telling of the earlier years of Eric’s life, from his birth to his arriving in Paris. First person narration is also used by some of the characters to give the story a stronger frame. Also The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is written entirely in first – person (with one exception) with three distinct narrators. Although there are certain parts in the book that I am grateful were left out or toned down in the film version (on a personal note, I am not a fan of Feminist authoresses and their attitudes).
