    Re: His this style surprises me

    It makes no sense at all, particularly the completely ungrammatical "His this". What was the context? Can you try to write it in another way?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    His style of (talking, writing etc.) surprised me.

    I can't use "this", right?

    Yes. This sentence is incorrect: His style of this surprised me.
