I like several kinds of writing, writ by those good at the various types.
I like spare writing such as you are talking about.
I like word pictures and word sounds in writing, the musicality of some writing, but easily erupt with distaste if all that becomes very noticeable.
There is writing for design specification, and writing to describe how you felt yesterday when the bird landed on your plate, and moody writing, near poetry.
I'm about to start in on a book by David Foster Wallace that I expect to have some reactions to, good, bad, or indifferent, having not read him before but having read a fair amount about him.
