This is one of the most memorable books I think I've read so far. I was only around the age of 13 when my sister lended me the book, and 2 years later I'm still able to look back at the characters and the way it touched me.Some parts of the book were very challenging especially for my intellect at the time, but I would still reccomend this book to anyone who wants to learn about things in the past. I read it once and I'm looking forward to reading it again...

    Embarassment to Women Everywhere

    This is the most god awful book I've ever read. The submissiveness of Janie is disgusting, it is impossible for her to stand on her own two feet. This book is pointless, and it's only plot is a woman who keeps finding other men to run to after her marriages crumble as an escape route from her current town

    UGH! I remember reading this in High School! It was AWFUL! My English teacher even hated it! She just read it because it was part of the curriculum. Don't read this! Janie is just an idiot looking for a guy to "love".
    I don't want to spoil part of the end, but it was dumb and her fault. Just saying. It's true
