Bookshelf | Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (1937) | The life and loves of a hopeless romantic

Book Recommendation: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (1937)

In this beautifully written novel, Janie Crawford, a passionate, Southern, African-American woman, tells the story of her tumultuous journey of finding true love and her own true self. In Janie, Hurston has created a heroine whose hunger for experience resonates with every dreamer and whose desire for love touches every romantic. I am both a dreamer and a romantic, so I truly enjoyed this story. The richness of Hurston’s prose is mesmerizing and breathtaking, and she proves she is truly a master of lyricism. Hers is the kind of writing that seeps into your bones. Reading this book changed the way I look at words on a page. It’s the kind of book that, after finishing it, you want to flip back to the very first page and start all over again.
