The scenes in Simmons's The Hollow Man alternate between third person omniscient and first person, with the first person narrator apparently having a fairly omniscient view of Jeremy Bremen's life, speaking of it almost as in retrospect. My suspicion is that the narrator is intended to be Robby, a blind/deaf/autistic child whose tragic story is told in between scenes with Bremen. The Wikipedia entry states it as fact, but I'm uncertain of the evidence for it. Is there a Word of God answer on this from the author, or at least some good evidence?
