Lauren Oliver has a writing style I enjoy. She sets scenes up with well-worded descriptions, she creates some swoon-worthy characters, and her heroines are flawed but realistic. I supposed what I have trouble with is that what she writes isn't always necessary to the story. I liked this peek into Hana's mind, but it wasn't a necessary addition to the overall storyline. I should probably be grateful to an author who still is invested in her series and willing to share (for free when I read it) more of her work.
