Sounds like you're confusing 'simple' with 'easy'. Rich Hickey does a good job of contrasting the two in Simple Made Easy[0].

The essential part of Redux is only 44 lines of simple code [1]. You can understand everything that it is doing. That is simple. It doesn't mean that it's going to be a great experience to work with (you might want to add some abstraction on top to make it also 'easy'), but it is definitely simple.
