I saw this question posted in another forum, and it didn't have any responses, so naturally I decided to bring it over here. :)
I realized, 80% of the way through my first draft, that I don't have a dominant, lead character in this book. I believe that I can pull it off, managing carefully to not head-hop or change characters mid-scene, but I just wanted to get some feedback on that. Is it a problem for a book to lack a specific dominant character? How do other writers feel about not letting one character take the reins? When you're reading, does it turn you off a novel to not have a dominant lead?
EDIT: To make this a more SE friendly question: Could you please give me some examples of books that did not have one specific, dominant character? Please provide information on what those books did to make the story and characters compelling without being overwhelming.
