In the book we get told the life story of Janie, an African-American woman living in the East of the US, during a time where slavery was over, but where white people were still considered a higher range.

Their Eyes Were Watching God is a beautifully written novel; Hurston really had a talent for writing surroundings and feelings in a poetic matter. It is overall well-written without being overly complicated, which makes it easy to read as well. And last but not least, the story itself is really interesting.

The reading challenge: Two points – one point because it is written by a person of color. And one point because the book is about an interesting woman.
