Their Eyes Were Watching God | Zora Neale Hurston

Pickpick

I had to keep reading till I finished, after Tea Cake arrived things really got moving. A lot of the rhyming lines & the story made me think of Bob Dylan‘s writing too. A powerful story on every level. I feel shook up inside. Look forward to hearing everyone‘s thoughts whenever all are finished. Feels like a book that will be bonding. Must think more about it myself now ....

cathysaid I read this one in a literature class in college and then again in grad school. If those of you reading haven‘t already, you might find it interesting to read a bit about the author‘s life after you‘ve read the book. Puts a lot of things in perspective. Just be warned...it‘s a sad history 😞 5mo
Cathythoughts @batsy thanks! I hope you get some reading time 👍🏻♥️ 5mo
Cathythoughts @cathysaid thanks for that. Will have a look 👍🏻♥️ 5mo

I‘m also about halfway through - this is my favourite quote so far. I just love the idea that thoughts can be turned into pictures by talking about them - beautiful!

I‘m halfway till tomorrow.... ( wish I could read tonight ) Storyteller ! So quotable... & what she really does for me is that she brings it all home. We are no longer talking about issues & points of view out there ... I find myself thinking of my family history & of the pain , of people I loved ... of how they were hurt , In ways that were seen as nothing & in more visible ways .. #TheirEyesWereWatchingGodBuddyread2019

TrishB 😘 love it when a book does this. 5mo

Cathythoughts @TrishB @Ruthiella @erzascarletbookgasm @batsy thanks! Such simplicity & power all at once ... Tea Cake has entered the story at this point. I didn‘t think this would be such a beautiful page turner ... 5mo
youneverarrived Stunning writing. It‘s so vivid and emotive. 5mo
