Read it out loud, December 7, 2014

Don't let the challenge of interpreting Scots turn you away from Ghost Highland Way. It's beautifully evocative, and its randomization and short length easily justify multiple playthroughs. I used the dictionary on my first go-round, but only a little. The language and its cadences are as essential to this gamepoem as the content (if not more), and by your second playthrough (especially if you sound the words out), you'll start to get it. (Sort of like my favorite foreign films, and how I barely read the subtitles when I revisit them.) The structure, line spacing, and simple presentation effectively serve the wistful tone and thoughtful pace. Well worth your time.
