You would have seen many movies where the flow of the story goes in such a way -
The present life of the protagonist - talks with someone / sees something - reminds him something of a past experience - shows the past incident - back to the present time
Now this is a good way of showing the story and balancing between past and present. But my question is, for writing a novel, is this a good approach? Because I think this might make the readers a bit confused. (For the movie part, the viewer can see the change in time, which might help them)
Also, if there's an example of any novels written in such a manner then kindly give some examples.
