One of the best explanations of third person POV I have ever read.

Tight and distant third person are actually part of a continuum that stretches all the way from outer-space distant–to right up inside your character’s skull. The more distant the narration, the more emphasis there is on the narrator’s voice and opinions (and the more important it is to have a strong voice). And the closer the narration, the more emphasis there is on the character’s experiences—to the eventual elimination of the narrator’s voice.
