  • Had to Read for English and I'm Glad I Did!

    By TheNumber1Hero
    At first I was a little weary of this book. I've only ever loved one book that was a required read for school and that was "Catcher in the Rye." I'm not a big fan of historical fiction normally as I'm more of a sci-fi and fantasy girl so I was expecting to hate this book. I was happily surprised however! The plot started out slow but quickly picked itself up. I actually wanted to read ahead of my class and looked forward to when new pages were assigned. I found the main character relatable and a good case study on how relationships should and shouldn't work. It tackles big issues on womanhood and growing up with amazing word choice and elegant ways of pointing out the most obvious things. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has an open mind and is ready to open it further. Very amazing book!
  • Simply Great

    After listening to other refer to this book, I finally read it for myself. I wasn't disappointed. Simply a great story.
  • Amazing!

    By Reviewer0682
    For my summer project for junior year of high school (two summers ago), I had to read this book. The second I picked up the book, it completely drew me in and I was mesmerized. I do see a lot of myself in Janie, falling in love, seeing the love was not right, and later repeating it until she found Tea Cake. Janie, in my opinion started out naive, like most girls such as myself do when it comes to falling in love, but I was very proud of her when she left her first husband, Logan, and when she started to stand up for herself when Joe started abusing her. This book was amazing, and will ALWAYS and forever be a favorite of mine. Even though it's been a year since I've read this book, I still talk about it to this day, and yes still cry over it. This book is honestly a must read.
  • Terrible

    By TDigs64
    Hurston's point in this story is to spread the idea of feminine power, etc.. She chooses a terrible protagonist in Janie, who is not likable at all. She is never satisfied with her husband. She does not want to work. She is a bad wife. I hated this book!
  • Beautifully written and gripping

    By ChristineNYC
    I couldn't put it down. The writing is lyrical and poetic, yet very natural. Zora's writing captures a time and a culture that seems both real and mythical. I'm blown away. Now I want to read her autobiography.

  • Powerful

    By TLSams
    Janie could be me. Caucasian, 3 times married, living in the Midwest to escape The 'Glades' (Florida) I love this book. Perhaps got me bigger than 'Gone with the Wind'. You professor types figure that one out! Just read it, humanity!
  • Simply incredible.

    By Ceairranicole
    I don't write reviews but people need to know how incredible this book is. I had to read this in high school for AP Literature. It easily became my favorite book from high school. The way it is written in her tongue takes some getting used to but it really makes you feel like you are the main character and like you see from her eyes.
