Review: The Color Purple

The Color Purple The Color Purple by Alice Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My continued run through the classics and Goodreads Top 100 books, finds me on another Pulitzer prize winner and a classic one. This time it's a story of a tortured little black woman called Celie who faces nothing but hardships and disappointments all the way. This is the story of how she finds the happiness through all the troubles. How despite all the odds she finds love and confidence and success. This is a life story of her and most of it is told through letters written between Celie and her sister Nettie who has to run away from the house at a young age due to the toxic man around her.

Ah well it's a statement of Feminism and a powerful one at that. This book very truthfully and beautifully showcases the USA of 1930s and beyond. The one person who can be credited in bringing about the most change in our heroine would be Shug Avery the singer the enigma who comes and live in her home and they fall in love. Shug is the one who motivates Celie and guides her to be her own woman who can do what she wants to do.

The book tells the story of Celie since she is 14 years old to when she becomes older with Grey hair. Another good read thanks Goodreads. So yeah do pick this book and then Just Keep on Reading.
