I would say that the best stories, first person or not are those that fool the reader. Most movies we go to we could logically say that everything works out for the best in the end; the only stories with bad endings are usually horror. Yet we suspend our beliefs temporarily while the movie or story runs, with the best dragging us into the plot, making us feel what the character is going through. Someone is sick? Will they die? Probably not, but if done right we can cry right along with the main character.

It is how a story is written, rather than what we 'know' will happen that determines how good it is.

I sincerely doubt that that is the only incident of such happening in all recorded fiction.
One sentence; 'I see dead people!'

Sorry for another rant, this place is addictive.
