Which form the novel takes can affect how information is revealed to us. If it is monologic then what we'll have is a single, possibly biased, view, and we may have to read between the lines to get the subtext or to note the characterization that comes through. When between just two characters, these novels are often love letters, or the restriction to just two characters will be used to compare the intimacy between these two compared to the rest of the world. When dealing with many characters, w\hich could be many-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-many, we can compare how one character treats two different characters, what they reveal in one case compared to another, etc. We can also return to the practice of revealing information not revealed to some of the characters and introduce DramaticIrony.

* Though the podcast ''Podcast/AliceIsntDead'' takes the form of a CaptainsLog recorded by a driver in the cabin of her truck, it's also a monologic epistolary. In her logs, the {{Narrator}} speaks throughout as though she's addressing her wife, Alice, occasionally adding commentary that implies she expects Alice to listen through them if they reunite.
-->'''Narrator:''' I know what you're thinking, Alice. "This is intentional avoidance." I don't have to explain myself to you. But I will.
