Unexpectedly glorious

Really, I thought that something written in 1937 would feel tremendously dated, but the vibrant storytelling and Janie's amazing life and growth into her own sense of self drew me in in ways that I never expected. She yearned for a life of her own, and followed her dreams to find it. It wasn't easy, and it wasn't perfect, and it didn't end happily even. But oooohhhhhhhh, the journey is the point, isn't it?

I was hooked, and thought about it for days afterward.

(Additionally, I very much appreciated the Foreword and Afterword in my 2006 Harper Perennial Modern Classics edition for the way they filled in the importance of this novel in its time and place, and gave me information about the author. That really added to the experience of the novel, and I am particularly glad for them.)
