    Why we think it’s a great listen: Zora Neale Hurston’s classic novel begs to be read aloud, and Ruby Dee answers the challenge with utter perfection, capturing the wide range of characters and their diverse accents with grace and power. Their Eyes Were Watching God is the luminous and haunting novel about Janie Crawford, a Southern Black woman in the 1930s, whose journey from a free-spirited girl to a woman of independence and substance has inspired writers and readers for close to 70 years.

    Overall

    I have been meanng to read this book for some time, having seen it on so many "recommended" lists. I am a writing teacher and am especially sensitive to the use of language. I was immediately captivated by Hurston's exquisite descriptions and observations about human nature and race relations. I've since bought the book so I can underline the passages I especially love.
    I've listened to many audio books but have never heard a better reader than Ruby Dee. What a wonder she is, making this book come alive with her many varied and realistic voices.
