Their Eyes Were Watching God, an American classic, 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. This poetic, graceful love story, rooted in Black folk traditions and steeped in mythic realism, celebrates boldly and brilliantly African-American culture and heritage. And in a powerful, mesmerizing narrative, it pays quiet tribute to a Black woman who, though constricted by the times, still demanded to be heard. Originally published in 1937 and long out of print, the book was reissued in 1975 and nearly three decades later Their Eyes Were Watching God is considered a seminal novel in American fiction. Performed by Ruby Dee.

Poetic, beautifully written and full of insights about people and love. Janie's story is heart-wrenching and tender, hopeful and powerful.

This is the best audiobook I have ever enjoyed. Ruby Dee is a truly gifted reader. She not only makes every voice different, and she interrupts herself with different voices. Fantastic. Great story.
