Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

I read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston in my AP lit class, and I loved it! My one regret is that we had to read it slowly for class. This book is about Janie and the decisions that she makes, the decisions that are made for her, and how they affect her life. In this book Janie is telling her life story to Pheoby in only one night. Janie is an awesome woman and as the book goes on my respect for her grows and grows. This book also made me think a lot about decisions, about if Janie’s situation improved as the book progressed or if she was trapped and didn’t really have a choice in her decisions. It also made you think about yourself and if you would be able to make decisions like Janie, whether because she is strong or if you are scared. This book reminded me of The Color Purple by Alice Walker and Zora Neale Hurston was actually inspired by Alice Walker. It is told with a strong southern accent so sometimes to understand what was being said I had to read it aloud. I would strongly recommend this book, it would be a good book club book because it is so much fun to talk about, but it is also just a great read.
