Blood Red Road Tough-o-Meter

By Moira Young


(3) Base Camp

The story of Blood Red Road is told in a super-sparse, simple style, so it's a pretty easy read. On the other hand, some readers might be troubled by the heavy use of dialect and first-person voice. Even with those caveats, however, we still think that the novel's approachability is one of its best qualities.
