This book is pretty straightforward, so you shouldn't have any trouble. Take this totally random sentence:

As I ate, Papa sat down at the table and started talking man-talk to me. (6.32)

Got it? Of course you do. There are only four words of more than one syllable, and one of them is "Papa." The only thing to keep an eye out for is some seriously outdated language. The book was written in the late 1950s or early 1960s, and takes place 50 years before that, so the boy throws around words like "gunnysacks" and "buggies." (Oh, and city slickers should watch out for some hunting terminology—but, you know what? We think you're going to be fine.)
