Like the distinctive word lists, these sentences suggest something about each author’s style. Rowling’s betray her reliance on suspense: “Harry looked around,” “He waited,” “Harry stared.” (A list of her most frequently used sentences could be repurposed into a script for an absurdist play called Waiting for Voldemort.) Meyer’s sentences—“I sighed,” “He sighed”—show a text focused on the emotional lives of her characters. Collins’ declarative sentences telegraph her books’ relatively spare descriptions of the action.
