The novel is easy to read and full of colorful, unusual language allowing the reader to create mental pictures while reading. Some terms such as zeps and krimpets are regional terms that are sometimes challenging to comprehend. Moderate to difficult sports terms may also pose a challenge to those who are sports novices.
