Frank O’Connor wrote and published two versions of the story, “First Confession”. The first version was written in limited omniscient point of view and the second one was written in a first person point of view. I found after reading both versions that the limited omniscient style was entertaining, effective and more to my liking.
The version written in omniscient style opens and gives a quick description of the boy and his sister. It

Their arguing was more animated because of the greater amount of dialogue. Her dislike of the situation was plainly obvious in both versions.
Of the two, I likes the limited omniscient style the best. It told more of a story using dialogue, humorous scenes and actions. Being a Catholic it left more of an impression on me. The humor and point of view throughout the story was entertaining and definitely made the story more effective.
