More specifically, there are Basque words sprinkled liberally throughout. After the protagonist gets to the Basque country, it seems more natural and more tolerable, but in the first part of the book, it's oppressive. I gave it up after 50 or 60 pages, but then I read the two 5-star-shill-grams above, and decided to continue.
The whole book is sprinkled with Basque words, like black pepper on mashed potatoes. The whole book is also sprinkled, perhaps like red pepper on mashed potatoes, with bad grammar, enough so to be terribly distracting. The author has a serious 'had' problem. (I wrote to the author, twice, trying to get a fix on his misuse of 'had', but he did not reply. He is a professor at Phoenix College, so maybe he'll get around to it. Professors have time to write books and reply to sincere queries from readers and students, of which I am both.)
