really liked it

This book was selected for a book club I belong to. It's not my type of book. I had a hard time getting into the flow of the book - primarily because it was the biblical story of Moses. The hep black Harlem style of "talking" took some getting used reading.

In the end, I have to say I enjoyed the book. I was impressed how Hurston was able to fictionalize the story without loosing the basic Moses/Exodus story line. I realized that the biblical Moses story was probably somewhat fictionalized too. Sorry my fundamentalist friends.
