Point of view is one of the strongest tools a writer has in their toolbox, because a story can drastically change just by changing who’s telling it and how they feel about those events. Like witnesses to an event who all see something different.
The wrong point of view can even hurt an otherwise great story, because a character might be too far from the story’s events to make a good point of view character. They might even be too close and not able to give the proper perspective needed for that particular tale.
It’s an important choice to make in any story.
