Description
ONE OF THE BBC '100 NOVELS THAT SHAPED OUR WORLD' 'A lush celebration of all that it means to be a black female' Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 'A story about Black women living in the intersections of racialized and gendered violence, who find liberation through community with each other. A brutal and beautiful novel' Brit Bennett 'Every single time I read this book, I walk away as a slightly better person than I was when I picked it up' Tayari Jones 'I think that The Color Purple was the first book that made me think that I could try to be a writer - or that made me aware that a young black woman from the South could write about the South' Jesmyn Ward 'I got the book and read it, in one day, when it came out. And then I went back, the next day, and bought every copy they had' Oprah Winfrey Sisters Celie and Nettie share the pain and struggle of growing up as African American women in early twentieh-century rural Georgia. Forced into an abusive marriage, at least Celie can offer Nettie refuge from their violent father in her new home - until Nettie catches the attention of Celie's husband and is forced to leave and forge her own journey. Through a series of letters spanning twenty years - first from Celie to God, then between the two sisters - they manage to sustain their hope in each other across time, distance and silence, in a triumph of resilience, bravery and ultimately, love.

Pretty good

One of the greatest novels ever written...you need to read this book once in your lifetime atleast and marvel at the sheer genius of Alice Walker..the epistolary form of the book adds life to it..Cecile,Shug,Nettie all remain alive in the readers mind long after you close the last page...the book is realistic to the core and depicts the lives of those oppressed in a very subtle manner...

Worth every penny

I've heard a lot about this novel and couldn't wait to embark upon my journey into it. The book was finely packed, in a good condition without any folds or wrinkles. The cover is simply gorgeous, with a matte finish. The page quality is fine as well. As I've not yet finished reading it, I can not comment upon the content. But I'm sure I won't be disappointed, nor any of you.

One of the best i have ever read

Once you start reading you will totally slip into the character and you could actually feel everything the protagonist feels. Dosent matter what i comment The Pulitzer prize whch the author won for the book kind of gives an important reason to read it.

Excellent

A Black Fiction.
Yes, so the delivery and paper quality or price etc are good and well.
Now the contents and suggestions are 💯 go for it.
Why?
So listen :-
a) You can know the lives of Black American and domination done to Black women not by whites but the black male.
b) About how the self identity has been discovered.

Just read it once, highly recommend.!!
