I am in the process of writing a science fiction novel and am considering casting an entire city as a POV character. I do believe that I've read a novel with something like this before, but I cannot recall a specific book. I know there are a lot of examples of sentient setting, but it's usually manifested in individuals -like character constructs in the Matrix, or like living trees, etc. in fantasy books.

Can anyone recall reading a sci-fi novel with a sentient setting as narrator or POV character?

  • I recall a story with a tree for a narrator. Does that count? – Mr Lister Sep 30 '12 at 16:05

    We've found that questions calling for a list of works do not work — this is a questions and answers site, not a list site. I didn't find a matching page on TVTropes, but EldritchLocation has a few examples. You're welcome to raise this in chat as well. – user56 Sep 30 '12 at 19:45
