I am always impressed when an author reads his or her own prose. Alice Walker may be the only one who can bring the voices and characters in her novel to life in this way. The complete package is stunning and I am glad to have listened!
An amazing read, never gets old and insightful. Love reading this but to listen to it read with all the accents and characters voices come to life was amazing!
I've long intended to read this book, but I felt like it might be like eating your vegetables—good for you, but not much fun. It's true that "The Color Purple" is heavy, but it's also full of joy, humor, and beauty. Alice Walker's performance of this material really brings the book to life.
This book is one of the most empowering books I've ever read. It's told plainly and beautifully in a way I had no idea i'd enjoy so much. A thrilling story about life... It's ups and downs and having to just live it and learn from it what you can.
