    1 thought on “The Color Purple / The Temple of My Familiar”

    1. The Color Purple is one of those books I've heard a lot about, so when I saw it free on Kindle I decided now was my chance to read it. So, I'm going to go against the flow here and say that I don't understand all the accolades this book gets. On the one hand, Alice Walker is a good writer and she definitely tells a story that needs to be told, a story of abuse and of anger. However, there was so much about the book I was uncomfortable with: too many sex scenes, approval of homosexuality (though [...]

    2. Absolutely head-over-heels for “The Color Purple”; not so much for “The Temple of My Familiar.”

    3. This book, a work of fiction, explores topics that range from slavery, to reincarnation, sexuality, self expression, relationships, racism, sexism, healing, magic, music, writing, art, feminismIt is filled with a rich variety of characters, all with their unique complexity, and weaves them to show how interconnected we all are, to everything around us, other human beings, animals, the earth, to life itself. One of the reasons why Alice Walker is my favourite author is because her writing is very [...]

    4. I read this when I was 10 years old. My neighbor "lent" it to me. I don't think I really understood it until I saw the movie shortly afterwards, but I always remember how I felt this perpetual pit in my stomach as I traveled along side Celie, and all she endures, right up until the end. To this day, I cannot watch the end of the movie without balling my eyes out. This in my mind is a "Classic".

    5. Part love story, part fable, part feminist manifesto, part political statement, Walker's new novel follows a cast of interrelated characters, most of them black, and each representing a different ethnic strain--ranging from diverse African tribes to the mixed bloods of Latin America--that contribute to the black experience in America.

    6. Loved the color purple. Told in letters, a poor black girl grows older and discovers herself. The second one was so terrible I couldn't read past chapter two.
