Casey I highly recommend experiencing Their Eyes Were Watching God on audio - Ruby Dee's narration is perfection, and the vernacular can be difficult on the page.

I will try. I must admit I'm not great with audio - I find it difficult to keep paying attention and not zone out - but I'm willing to give it a shot. Thanks for the tip! :)

Jo Hi, Emily May! First I would like to say that I appreciate your reviews. They always make me think of the book in a different light. Second I am hoping you can help me get this to work. I can’t post to 2019 on Goodreads and cannot figure out how to make it work. Any help would be most appreciated!

Thank you, Jo. I'd like to help, but what do you mean about being unable to post? Sorry if I'm being dense.


message 5: by Jo (new)

Jo I am unable to update or add anything. I see that other people have added goals or lists for 2019, but there is no option for me to add anything to this book. It isn’t working like a normal book where I can post a review. I just thought perhaps there was a trick to adding info here.

That's so strange. No, there's no trick. I was able to add a review as I usually do. If you go here, is there no "edit" button at the top right?: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Silvia I hope you will give this translation a try: https://www.amazon.com/Iliad-New-Tran...
I am planning on reading it this Year, too. It' s the first translation of the illiad by a woman.

Hi Jo, I faced the same problem when I tried to do so on the app -- however, I'm able to review it from my laptop without any problem. :)

Albert Elnen A different variety of interests. I do enjoy reading your reviews.


message 11: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Great list!! I love reading the classics! Tons of fun! I really recommend Anne bronte The Tenant book. She’s lesser known than her sisters but a great author who really illustrated mental cruelty and coercion in the 1800s! (Although that being said not a fun book! Lol)

I LOVE The Tenant of Wildfell Hall! I'm not sure why Anne is less loved than Charlotte and Emily because she is fierce :) Maybe her books initially got less buzz because they were so... outspoken? I find her the most openly feminist of the three sisters.

message 14: by Hayley (new)

Hayley Stenger When I read "Their Eyes were Watching God", I read it aloud when they were speaking in dialect. That helped me a lot. Good luck! My copy of "The Winter of the Witch" should come this week!

Kacie I have had trouble with Their Eyes Were Watching God, and I think next attempt I will follow along with my eyeballs while listening to the audio


message 17: by Karen (new)

Karen Just curious why you picked atlas shrugged over the fountainhead. I found the latter both more readable and more interesting.

I read The Fountainhead some years ago and I wasn't a fan. I guess I just want to read Atlas Shrugged because it's considered her "magnum opus" and is always the one listed on "must read before you die" lists.

Kenny Great choices.
