    the author chose the right style of writing

    Due to the fact that the book is catching, it is clear that the author chose the right style of writing. In my opinion, he wanted us to plunge into the atmosphere by using a lot of dialogues and informal language and he did it. However, I would like to notice that the reading was fairly light because I did not use a dictionary at all.

    1. Can an author choose "the styole of writing". Does it sound natural?
    2. I mean that he wanted us to plunge and he implemented it.
    3. Can the reading be "fairly light". My collocation dictionary doesn't help me at all


    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Is this all homework, Boris? It looks like it.

    I give you my word that it's not. I'm already embarrassed that I'm asking you such questions.

    Re: the author chose the right style of writing

    What is the book catching?

    1. Yes, an author can choose a style of writing. The same guy may write poems, mystery novels, history books and washing machine manuals.
    2. This doesn't work. Stop your sentence after "language." And "dialogue" is singular.
    3. Reading can be light, usually meaning that not a lot of effort is required to understand or follow the story.
