I had to read this book for a class assignment within 2 weeks and I admitt that it was challenging to understand the dialect and the book in such a short period of time when you don't get home until 7:00 o'clock and have to wake at 6:00. But back to the subject I agree with what EMMAK in a way because you really have to think when reading the novel. I'm a ninth-grader and I admitt the dialect was a bit challenging but the book began gaining interest towards the end but when ever I get a chance I may another one of his novels to help me get a better understanding. But until then I have to keep working on my project for this book because it is due Friday and today is Wednesday. So keep reading and congratulations to those have finished the book.
