Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston

Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston

I had the opportunity to read a Hurston short story back in college. I think it was entitled Snake. I am not sure. Anyway, reading this novel is like reliving the difficulty of reading that short story. It is a good story, but the dialogues are localized. To understand them, I had to read them aloud to hear them and make any sense of them. I even think I adapted the accent denoted by the dialogues after finishing that.

After one chapter, a measly effort on my part, I gave up. I will resume tonight. I hope my reading will be better by that time.
