Small review because I'm too lazy to write an extensive one right now: Ella Minnow Pea was interesting to say the least. The entire book is in the form of letters which I found intriguing. I will admit that the language was difficult to understand at first. Dictionary.com was my friend for the first couple of letters. It did pick up a little later as the letters started to drop and certain words could not be used. It also became more difficult to read towards the end! Much of it became phonetic. I read a few pages to my husband and he was like "what the hell is this!" lol. Overall the book was ok. The setting was curious and I thought the punishments were harsh for the people but I guess that was what made the story interesting. I don't think I would ever want to read another book like this but it was a nice experience to have and did enjoy the play on the English language.
