A book containing many very annoying black southern colloquialisms, with a horrible storyline about a black woman's oppressed life. Of course, she has to throw in a bunch of sexual innuendos involving pear trees, flowers, and bumblebees. If you like reading about a little town called Eatonville where only blacks live, and people from miles around gather to see the new lamppost installed, you'd love this book. If you 're anything like a cognitive human being that requires some kind of respectable theme or decent storyline to enjoy something, stay far away from this book.
Our AP English class got assigned to read Their Eyes Were Watching God, regardless of the fact that everything else we've read contains 200% more thought-provoking content than this garbage.
