The Oscar winner of audiobooks! "Ruby Dee's reading of Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God is not only one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard but also a truly great feat of acting." Stephen McCauley

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

A book that I would never have chosen to experience, and now that I have, I feel lucky that I did. The narration is excellent, though I got a bit confused at several moments during the dialogue, since I couldn't tell who was saying what because there was only one reader. Nonetheless, the beginning third and the last fifth are especially engaging. The accents put on (central and northern Florida African-American) certainly sounded convincing to me.

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.
