I think that was the reason why I found it so good. The third person omniscient (writing for all characters, not for just one) is what I'm really hoping for. It's a tool that helps very much with characterisation and getting in deph with them. On my book reviews, I stress the importance of characters, so if writing in the third person omniscient will help me achieve the maximum characterisation potential, then I'll use it.
Plus, there's some sort of magical feeling around reading in present tense. Books have been used to being written in the past tense.
"She wore her ring and looked into her husband's eyes with a look of pure love. He returned her gaze and knew that she was the one"
"She wears the ring and looks into her husband's eyes with a look of pure love. He returns her gaze and knows that she is the one"
It's as if you are in the place of the character at the exact moment, instead of visiting the past of that one character. Am I making any sense?
