Ashley Gillard  (keylime314) | 3 comments I haven't read Their Eyes Were Watching God, mainly because I hate it when people to write accents. It just bothers the hell out of me.

I get that, reading accents can be tough. But it's so rewarding, and there are great books written in dialects which you'll miss! Like THIS ONE.

I recommend trying one on audiobook, writing in dialect can bring out incredible work from actors.


Peggy | 2 comments I feel like once you get into the book, into this incredible world Hurston builds, you barely notice the dialect anymore. You're just in it and it washes over you and so it's not annoying. It can take awhile to get used to, though, but it's soooo worth it, I swear.
