As a fair few reviews have stated, the language used in this book can be somewhat of a barrier. I was 16 when I read this book, and only thought of reading it after seeing the film. The film touched me a great deal and so I was interested in seeing how the read would compare.
As mentioned, I was 16, and managed to understand the book through till end, and found that gradually the old slang, or language, easier to read.
If you enjoy reading, and are willing to put in the time to read slowly and understand the words in this great novel, then it really is worth the read. It's a story of great morals, love and loss and I really would reccomend it.
