Asides are when the characters address the audience directly. It is like breaking the fourth wall.

Can't remember such instances since it's been a while since I read this book. But, if I read it again, I'll remember to check if there are such instances.

I didn't really notice any 'asides' when I was reading the book. To me, it felt just like the third person. What 'asides' did you come across? (I may have completely missed them! XD)
