Are the rumors true about FH's language?
Yes, it is not an easy read. Take your time.
I started reading it in the Summer when I was thirteen and finished just before the movie came out in December.
By contrast, I also read Asimov's Foundation series that summer, about a book a week.
Use my reading group to help you along.
