Book Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God
Author: 
Hurston, Zora Neale
Rating: 
5 stars = Bohemian Rhapsody Awesome!
Review: 

This book started off a bit slow and the vernacular was initially somewhat challenging to read, but once Janie meets Tea Cake the book explodes into a vivid account of life in the "muck." There were parts of the book that I couldn't put down. Hurston's prose is nothing short of voluptuous and the final paragraph was a triumph of the soul.
