by Zora Neale Hurston

Their Eyes Were Watching God is a story about a young African American woman named Janie Crawford as she navigates through adulthood in post Civil War America.

The novel was an excellent character study that illustrates the trials one must go through in order to attain true happiness. In some parts of the novel, however, the book dragged on in its prose, which ultimately kept it from being a 5 star book. 

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this novel for leisure. The language used within the novel is quite hard to decipher at times because it uses deep south dialect. However, if you're looking for a substantial read, I would recommend this book.
