Well written, though you need a dictionary for many adjectives and the occasional important word. I consider myself an average to above average reader and had a great deal of difficulty understanding some sections. Just glossing over most of the words you don’t know, you can still enjoy it as written. Those words may add shades of meaning, yet you lose other meanings and connections by taking the time to look their meaning up.
