Obviously, reader tastes vary; what appeals to one person may very well not appeal to another. My style is very narrative-driven, usually from the viewpoint of where the action (whatever form the action might take) is. Other styles give very much an overview, where the reader gets to see the whole picture. Drake's Drum, by @Nick Sumner is an example of a story that flips between overview picture and ground-level picture. That's a particularly difficult style to pull off, and credit to Nick for managing to do so.
