Disagree with previous reviewer. The writing is not dreadful and is easy enough to understand. That said, it could use an overhaul. Difficulty arises when the author throws in a bunch of lots of internal dialogue and footnotes buried in brackets that tend to jumble the tale. These stylistic tricks distract from the narrative and interrupt the flow. Still it isn't all that bad and if the author is attempting to be original, then he definitely succeeded.

Dreadful writing. Not sure if English is the writer's first language, but even if it isn't, everything is wrong with the story telling and punctuation, too. I'm no writer, but this is less than a first draft, I think.
A boy and his dad are playing catch, but the writer has the Dad think something just before it happens, or just before he says it, and then the conversations are like pretend chatter.
