This type of point of view causes a lot of questioning, making the reader wonder if this person is some you can actually believe.

With this type of point of view authors are able to exploit obvious pitfalls with the characters limited perspective.
“One of the biggest reasons I left Elkton Hills was because I was surrounded by phonies. That’s all. They were coming in the goddam window.
