Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston, 1937, United States, NOVEL

"...Janie seeks an ideal love from her teenage years onward but finds disappointment from the day she is essentially given as a bride to a middle aged man. She sees the hard side of womanhood, being a man's possession to do his will, before finding the love of her life with her third husband...."

Fionnuala This was a pre-gr read for me but I have vivid memories of it: the characters, the time, the atmosphere, the dialect, but most of all, the capturing of Janey's unique view of the world in striking prose.


Zanna (zannastar) | 180 comments Encouraging folks to read them: Samadrita's review is such a FEAST and props to Aubrey for her acute underlining of the book's present relevance


Alex I was hanging out with this friend of mine tonight who I hadn't seen for a few years and she was like "Dude, you read sortof a weird amount of books so I can't really keep up on FB, but anything stand out for you over the past...years?" and I was like "Yeah, Their Eyes Were Watching God."
