In fiction, a narrator is a voice or character who tells the story. The narrator generally can be divided into several types. An unreliable narrator is a character who tells the story but who does not have all the facts, or does not tell the audience everything he knows. Therefore, the narrator may say one fact is true, yet the audience, who is better informed than the character, knows that a different fact is true. Examples: The Sixth Sense, The Basketball Diaries
