Im doing the same exact thing. Well kind of. He writes a lot about death & horror since just about everyone around him that hes loved, has died. As for his style, we really havent gone over. At the moment we're reading The Tell-Tale Heart. All we've gone over is about how hes always acting scared & nervous. & you can tell this by how many explanations marks & dashes that he uses. I know I really didnt contribute much, but I wanted to try to help since Im doing basically the same thing.
