If any of you know what these words mean off the top of your head then kudos to you! I did not.
I don't typically like to give a lot of negative criticism, and I really did like the book, so I'm taking this as a learning opportunity for myself and my writing. I think it's important to remember what crowd it is you're writing to. And I think it's a wonderful thing to increase people's knowledge and vocabulary, but it should be within reason. I think I'll stash this little nugget of information in some corner of my brain and hope that it will help me to improve my writing.
