[Alice Walker] ↠´ The Color Purple [polyandry PDF] Ebook Epub Download Ì I read The Colour Purple in my early teens, was traumatized by the graphic abuse portrayed, and vowed to never read it again I was curious about why so many of my GR friends rated it so highly and was eventually convinced to give it another go.
Years after my first read, I still of course have the same visceral reaction to the abuse but that no longer blinds me from seeing the magnificence of Alice Walker s storytelling, and how she brings her characters to life.
Celie is the protagonist of the tale Her story is told through a series of letters written firstly to God, and then to her sister Nettie As an abused, uneducated woman abused by her father, husband, and step children who was only ever shown love by Nettie, the letters are very telling, and are the only means Celie has of expressing her feelings I adored Celie It really amazed me how a woman who was abused so much sexua Who you think you is he say You can t curse nobody Look at you You black, you pore, you ugly, you a woman Goddam, he say, you nothing at all And yet, she is one of the strongest characters I have ever met in literature Long before women began speaking up about their different experiences in the metoo movement, Alice Walker s Celie and her sisters resist the violence and power of the men around them and go on living through the pain and frustration, only to find life worth fighting for in the end Rarely these days do I finish a book within one sitting, but this novel was impossible to put down In a voice genuinely her own, Celie begins to tell her story of rape, loss, and forced marriage Her loneliness is so painful that she can t even think of a recipient for her letters Wow I mean Really Wow.
You know how there are some books and their words wrap around you like a comforting blanket WellThis Is Not One.
The Color Purple rips the clothes right off of your skin, leaving you bare and vulnerable From the first freakin moment opening the page You are just THERE and you can t be anywhere else but THERE Even when you re not.
Wow.
Have you seen the movie I had I thought I was prepared Because the movie was devastating I remember vividly being in the house that me and a couple of college friends rented, sitting there in the dark, all of us sitting on our furniture, chain smoking, drinking wine and crying The movie didn t prepare me.
Walker s words are music Sometimes a sweet melody, but mostly a cacophony of pain and sorrow Oh and how the characters change and grow with time, how they eventua Before I get into this review I should let you know that the ONLY thing I knew about The Color Purple is that it was a movie in the 80s I knew nothing about the plot or subject matter except for a few impressions of seeing Oprah and Whoopi in promotional stills or videos over the years Also, I try to avoid reading book summaries unless absolutely necessary as I feel they often give too much away I felt it was important to say this because as I have posted statuses and comments while I was reading it, I felt like there was some shock that I didn t knowabout it already So, now, how I was going into this book is all out on the table With that being said, this book was 100% not what I was expecting This is not a good thing or a bad thing It is just if you asked me to give a one paragraph description of what I was going to be I read The Colour Purple in my early teens, was traumatized by the graphic abuse portrayed, and vowed to never read it again I was curious about why so many of my GR friends rated it so highly and was eventually convinced to give it another go.

5 5 starsThe colour purple was devastating from page one I started reading this without knowing much about it I knew it had a POC main character, heard that it was about women s rights and about abuse I heard it was a great book But I still did not expect this.

It was not an easy book, neither plot nor writing were exactly motivating But I found so much hope in the first, and even happiness in the last chapters, that I just came to love it.
