marriage Her loneliness is so painf You got toight But I don t know how to Pinstripes and Penance fight All I know how to do is stay alive When I think about The Color Purple theirst ew words that pop into my mind are classic banned and touchy subjects I m pretty sure I m not alone with that I mean it s a book every reader heard about Some of us had to read it in school others saw the movie and still others only knew that it s one of those highly controversial books I belonged to the latter category and even though I read a ew reviews about it I definitely wasn t prepared Ali Pashë Tepelena for what I was about to read Ieel like something pushing me Little Fiery One forward If I don t watch out I ll have hold of her hand tasting heringers in my mouth This book surprised me but not in the way I thought it would I expected abuse in a man s world the suppression of women and yes even rape because my bestie warned me about that one a The Sacred King few years ago What everyoneorgot to mention was that this is also a story about strong women and two sisters that write each other Milking the Dogs, Part 1 for years One of them is living with a violent husband and the other lives in a colony in Africa and deals with completely different problems than her sister overseas Toollow their lives was very intriguing and I enjoyed Nettie s letters rom Africa a lot It was interesting to read how she lived and how the native people dealt with the missionaries that came to them 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 Celie however had to deal with an entirely different set of problems though and I can t say how much I despised Mr or his behaviour He s your typical run of the mill obnoxious and violent husband and I just couldn t deal with him If I d have been Celie I would have left him as soon as possible But where to go if you re a penniless woman without any Keisaramörgæsir family ties Well Celie certainlyound her own way to deal with him and I m very proud of her Mrs. Piggle-Wiggles Farm for standing up to him It took time and courage but she eventually managed to do it What load of bricksell on you I astNo bricks he say Just experience You know everybody bound to git some of that sooner or later All they have to do is stay alive And I start to git mine real heavy long about the time I told Shug it #was true that I beat you cause you was you and not her A very important part of this #true that I beat you cause you was you and not her A very important part of this which was never mentioned in any of the reviews I read is the How To Be A Domestic Goddess fact that there is af relationship in The Color Purple Yes you read right A Velvet Moon (Annwyn Chronicles, ff relationship between a lesbian and a bisexual woman At least I got the impression it s a lesbianbi relationship Which asiderom the violence and abuse is probably one of the main reasons this book is banned in so many countries and schools In my opinion Walker made sure never to explicitly touch the subject but rom the little you see you can glean that they are in love with each other and have a sexual relationship I know some people claim that there is graphic sexual content but either I read too much smut in my life pretty likely lol or I have a different concept of graphic than the average person also very likely due to all of the smut P He love looking at Shug I love looking at ShugBut Shug don t love looking at but one of us HimBut that the way it spose to be I know that But if that so why my heart hurt me so If this would have been a modern book I would have been very unhappy with the bisexual rep but since it s an old one I decided to take it the way it is No need to rant about it When I Know That People Had A Completely Different Outlook I know that people had a completely different outlook bisexuality back then Let s just say I didn t like that the bi character was represented as a rogue that only thinks with her loins lolConclusion The Color Purple addresses a lot of sensitive issues and considering in which time it was written this was a pretty bold move Walker doesn t shy away The History of Dark Corner Campbell County, Ga from bringing up difficult topics though and instead decided to introduce us into the life of a hugeamily that works in its own way It s complex it s multi layered and at times it s tough to read but if that s your jam I can totally recommend this book to you I believe God is everything say Shug Everything that is or ever was or ever will be And when you can Q-Squared feel that and be happy toeel that you ve ound It I m not entirely sure if it s a good idea to read The Color Purple while reading The Poppy War as well but I put them both on my book list 2019 and will have to return the latter one to the library soon So I guess if it have to return the latter one to the library soon So I guess if it too heavy I ll just have to read a very luffy and comfortable book in between XD eyes Carry On and Harry Potter Yes I actually dare to mention them both in one sentence lol PI know this book will address a lot of sensitive issues so I m sort of prepared Well at least as good as you can prepare yourself or classics like this oneAll I know is that I was destroyed after reading The Kite Runner Let s hope the same won t happen with The Color Purple I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a ield somewhere and don t notice it 455 starsThe colour purple was devastating rom 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 thisThe main character s life is miserable I still don t understand how she made it through to a certain point because if it were me in her skin I probably wouldn t have been able to stay in that skin or longIt was not an easy book neither plot nor writing were exactly motivating But I False Witness found so much hope in theirst and even happiness in the last chapters that I just came to love itFind of my

Wow I mean Really WowYou know how there are some books and their words wrap around you like a comforting blanket WellThis Is Not OneThe Color Purple rips the clothes right off of your skin leaving you bare and vulnerable From the irst Got Parts? freakin moment opening the page You are just THERE and you can t be anywhere else but THERE Even when you re notWowHave 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 collegeriends rented sitting there in the dark all of us sitting on our Divine Grace (Divine Creek Ranch, furniture chain smoking drinking wine and crying The movie didn t prepare meWalker 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 eventuallyind peace And the dichotomy of the South and Africa It makes me yearn to Kept find pieces of literature that can show me the mysteries of that continentI am incoherent and refuse to speak of the summary It s The Color Purple It doesn t need a summaryIt is aliveIt is life 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 exceptor a ew 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 eel they often give too much away I Camp Tiger felt it was important to say this because as I have posted statuses and comments while I was reading it Ielt like there was some shock that I didn t know about it already So now how I was going into this book is all out on the tableWith 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 reading about I would have written down nothing nowhere hear this I probably would have said something like ex slaves trying to survive in the post Civil War South Well spoiler that is not what it is aboutI will next mention a phrase that kept going through my head as I was trying to prepare to write my review I kept saying to myself that I am not sure I can should or have any right to write a review of this book It is a powerful and raw story about subject matter that is important and that I don t really know a whole lot about Because of that I cannot say Eddie for sure how I can possibly do a review justice I decided that while I will do this review it is important to remember that this book transcends any possible viewpoint I have of itOne thing that I came out of this book surprised about is that it is about women women s rights andemale relationships than it is about race Don t get me wrong race is an important element but the way that the men view and treat women and the way the women look at and treat themselves is the crux of this story As mentioned above this book is raw not too extreme but raw enough to warn readers that some of the subject matter is difficult and it may stir up strong emotions especially if you are a womanWhile I The abbots house found the book to be powerful and important I am going with 4 stars because I struggled at times with the writing I admit that this is just my preference and is all on me Some of you may love the way it is written but Iound that it was the reason I The Eagle Of The Ninth found myself taking long breaksrom the bookThis book is important to read or any person trying to make sure they hit all the classics Also people with an interest in historical iction and women s studies would benefit a lot rom this story In awe of the magnificent depths within The Color Purple Would rather debunk Great American Novel contenders such as Great Gatsby On the Road or Huckleberry Finn with this Definitive American classic novel The steel strong bonds of amily the global importance of Faith in the Fog of War friendship and the ever mystical soul defining actions of sisterhood are all immortal themes that are drawn in lush exuisite sometimes brutal hues the purple of aield of violets the purple of a deepening bruise In terms of the epistolary novel #my personal aves include dracula where d you #personal aves include Dracula Where d You Bernadette now this one the Bodice Rippers frailty of letters and the lost art of letter writing carry impliciteelings They ground the novel and contradiction make it an ethereal work of art The writer is a true magician that even out Faulkners Faulkner in her book E-mail Websites filled with light and gracePS theilm tries its damn hardest to keep up with Walker s uniue characters and their respective vernacular For me the line uttered by Adam at the end of the movie I want to know you mama never Good Boy fails to make me bawl 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 GRriends rated it so highly and was eventually convinced to give it another goYears after my Bo Knows Bo, Autobiography of a Ballplayer first read I still of course have the same visceral reaction to the abuse but that no longer blinds merom seeing the magnificence of Alice Walker s storytelling and how she brings her characters to lifeCelie is the protagonist of the tale Her story is told through a series of letters written Plants from Test Tubes firstly to God and then to her sister Nettie As an abused uneducated woman abused by herather 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 TABOO - The 3 Book Collection feelings I adored Celie It really amazed me how a woman who was abused so much sexually physically verbally could still have so much love in her heart and not be bitter Imagine hearing things like this regularly Husband to Celie Who you think you is You can t curse nobody Look at you You black you pore you ugly you a woman Goddam he say you nothing at all But Celie is something and one of myavourite parts of this book is the sisterhood portrayed especially by the enigmatic Shug who helped Celie on her journey to self realization The book has strong emale characters which is another plus I m so glad I gave this book a second chance Celie is a wonderful character and proof of the resilience of the human spirit I think us here to wonder myself To wonder To ask And that in wondering bout the big things and asking bout the big things you learn about the little ones almost by accident But you never know nothing about the big things than you start out with The I wonder the I love The Color Purple is an absolute
about love redemption Shug Celie Sofia and Nellie are some of the strongest women characters in American iction I am literally writing this with tears streaming down my cheeksThere is so much to unpack here as Alice Walker deals holistically with the Pingalavel fate of African Americansrom the perspective of Africa and the tribes who sold their kinsman to white slavers the devastation of Africa by European colonizers particularly after WWI leading to WWII the violence of in the South particularly aimed towards women emale sexualityThere is an infinite depth in this book that can reveal itself and with each successive read The irst half of the story is told through letters to God by Celia who is married against her will to Mr We learn that his Eat or Be Eaten! first name is Albert but we never learn his last name Perhaps this anonymity is symbolic of the widespread rape and spousal abuse in impoverished communities and yet we also see that in the white mayor samily through her sister in law Sofia s eyes is no sane and no less violent Celia was raped by her stepfather and bore two children that subseuently disappeared Her sister refuses Mr in marriage and leaves and thus Celia is given to him Sex or her is a burden and a torture without end You know the worst part she say The worst part is I don t think he notice He git.
