    Description
    The classic, PULITZER PRIZE-winning novel that made Alice Walker a household name. Set in the deep American South between the wars, THE COLOR PURPLE is the classic tale of Celie, a young black girl born into poverty and segregation. Raped repeatedly by the man she calls 'father', she has two children taken away from her, is separated from her beloved sister Nettie and is trapped into an ugly marriage. But then she meets the glamorous Shug Avery, singer and magic-maker - a woman who has taken charge of her own destiny. Gradually Celie discovers the power and joy of her own spirit, freeing her from her past and reuniting her with those she loves. 'One of the most haunting books you could ever wish to read ... it is stunning - moving, exciting, and wonderful' Lenny Henry

    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...

    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.

    Hated it!

    I was given with a school complimentary edition which was not supposed to be sold for outside purposes.
    plus the MRP of the book was stated as 200/- , which made the situation much worse.
