Since many of my favorite books meet this criteria, I have tried to list some that I haven't previously mentioned.
Guernica by Dave Boling
This gorgeous novel takes place during the Spanish Civil War and follows the lives of many people affected by it, including Picasso. I had never read anything about Guernica before, and this book taught me a lot about the history of it, as well as telling a touching story.
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
This classic follows eight separate characters and has eight points of view. As a teen I didn't appreciate this story, but now I really like this story about four immigrant moms and their American-raised daughters.
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
I really liked Rowling's first adult novel, and a great deal of that enjoyment had to do with the amazing characters she developed. If you like character-driven novels, this one is amazing.
Absent Sherri Vanderveen
This was my favorite book of 2014, and I wrote a raving review of it. It follows a father who has abandoned his family, as well as his wife and two children. Each perspective offers a different view of how his actions have changed each person's life irrevocably.
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
There's not much that needs to be said about A Song of Ice and Fire, right? Martin does such an excellent job of developing each character, and while I like some perspectives better than others, each point of view enhances the story.
Those are my top 5 picks for books with multiple points of view. What are some of your favorites?
Also, check out my latest book review on A Voice in the Wind, which also has several perspectives.
