I never was sure if I liked the story in Ridley Walker or just liked the puzzle of working out the language. I understand that there is an edition out there with a vocabulary in the back. Take all the fun out of it. The only other Hoban book I could handle was The Mouse and His Child, which purports to be a children's book. It makes Watership Down look like Peter Rabbit.
