Book Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston — 8 Comments

  1. I read it an was underwhelmed. Technically, I appreciated it but I read it on my own and I have a feeling, based on what you share in your blog, that if I’d read it along with someone or in a group I might have enjoyed it much more. I never wanted to see the movie not because I didn’t like the book but because I didn’t see how it would be effectively translated to film. Some books lend themselves to such things. This one, I felt, did not.

  2. Sounds like a book I’d enjoy so I’m adding it to my list. I wish I could read it with a group like you did.

    I also live in Central Florida so I’ll have to check out Sandy’s review.

  4. I reread this book last year and loved it more the second time around. There’s so much to discuss and think about with this novel. Glad you enjoyed it.

  7. I loved this book.
    The tale of how Janie found her voice in a society didn’t want
    to hear what she had to say.
    It is a story of how a woman found independence and power in a culture that
    denied women the privilege of self determination.
    It is a document that shows the legacy of division, a community divided turns on itself
