What is your stance on recapping past events in a story?
Personally, I like it when Character A recaps something for Character B and Character B gives another view of the happenings or a new perspective.
Recapping can be a powerful tool for the Author in regards to either sorting past events of the story or reminding the viewer of it. Especially if the storypart or event happened a long time ago (either by wordcount or posting date).
When I come along a scenario where the paragraph is only "tell me about what happens" *tells him what happens*, I feel let down, more so, if the character who gets the recap was build up beforehand and I looked forward to his/her perspective on it. Talking about it afterward with the thoughts, etc. of Character B is a minor substitute and would have been better included in a full recap.
Of course, recapping the same thing for 5 different characters is over the top.
