Quick Book Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston has been in my TBR pile for over a year. With nothing lined up to read, and having just read an article about Hurston, I grabbed it and started reading. I was quickly pulled in by the character Janie. This was a wonderful book. It takes a bit of work to read the parts that are in dialect, but it is worth it. Her writing is poetic and the book tells very vividly of a time and place previously unknown to many of us.
