4.0 out of 5 stars The not so Immigrant Novel, December 7, 1999
This review is from: The Color Purple (Paperback)
Alice Walker's, The Color Purple is a fascinating book of the struggle of black women, who were not only oppressed by white society but also oppressed by black males as well. In the beginning, readers find the main character, Celie, a virtual slave in her own family. Being raped at a young age by her father and losing her children which were sold to a family by the man who raped her. Celie, in the hopes of finding a better life through marriage, finds herself in a similar situation with her new husband. Celie finally breaks out of this bondage with the help of friends and with the found letters from her sister Nettie that Celie's husband had suppressed. Celie regains her self esteem and throws away the chains of her bondage, going on to become a succesful woman and reuniting with her long lost children. This book captures the spirit of a struggling women who demonstrates no matter how desperate the situation seems, she can make it through. An uplifting book that demonstrates how cruel mankind can be and how strong the human spirit is.
