The Complete Stories Reviews

Zora Neale Hurston is an amazing writer and folklore that a word? It should be!
Rich Greene
excellent compilation with great notes from contributing scholars
Mills College Library
Hurston's voice is lyrical and keeps you swept up in her characters lives.
Frog :: Skellig :: I Heard the Owl Call My Name :: Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet :: Toni Morrison: Song of Solomon / Beloved / Jazz
This book of short stories is classic Z.N. Hurston and fun to read once you get into the rhythm of the phonetic dialogue among her characters.
Great collection of short stories. If you teach high school, students really love how compartmentalized they are.

Enjoyed some of the stories, though I found some of the language used a bit difficult to follow.
wonderful collection of stories that give an idea of hurston's true range and genius
I thoroughly enjoyed almost all of the short stories in this collection. However, the historical, Bible fanfiction type stories seemed just so out of place that I almost skimmed through them.
This is one of the best short story collections I've ever read. The first three stories are so fantastic it really made me giddy. Hurston is such a talented, visual writer.
You'll laugh, you'll cry and then you'll be mad as hell for the black folks she's writing about. One of my favorite authors, living or dead.
One of the best openings to a novel, ever. Zora inspired Alice Walker's work as well as many others. An American masterpiece, with much to say to audiences never considered in The Great Gatsby.
I might be one of the few but I dislike Hurston's writing. I appreciate what she wrote and the insight it gives readers to this time but I find it extremely difficult to read and boring.
This book shows how Zora developed as a writer, but also how fully formed she was, in many ways, as a woman in her early twenties.
