Excellent story and great narration by Ruby D. The book is so well written that you become part of the story.
Of course the novel is beautifully written and a classic. The blend of style and substance make it a favorite of mine. The fact that it still can spark discussion and thoughtful debate as well as sympathetic tears is a testament to its timelessness. Ruby Dee does an outstanding job and while I like her better as every other character except Janie, I suspect that's just the fact that I had another voice in my head when I've read before and they don't match up. If you haven't read this yet, you're in for a story!
This story was enchanting, moving, and painful. one of the most well written stories I have enjoyed in a long while, poetic. The reading performance was one of the best.
the narration was absolutely beautiful -- some books are better in words on the page bit this one sounds even better than it reads, especially because this narrator is very talented.
Ruby Dee gives an amazing performance. I still have my college copy of Their Eyes Were Watching God, but was swayed to get the audiobook based on the reviews. Ruby Dee didn't disappoint. She brings the characters alive with distinct voices, ably handling the varied dialects. What a performance!
I read this book many years ago and wanted to read the book again. Rudy Dee tipped me to purchase the audio book. I loved every minute of this book. Rudy Dee took it to another level. Time and money well spent. I highly recommend this book - especially when read by Ruby Dee.
