    Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 - when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate - and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister", a brutal man who terrorizes her.

    Amazon Customer says: "Absolutely Wonderful"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Color Purple to be better than the print version?

    Yes, since the true voice of the author (literally) can be heard.


    What other book might you compare The Color Purple to and why?

    Tess of the D'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy, for all the main character's suffering and personal growth.


    Which character – as performed by Alice Walker – was your favorite?

    Celie was my favorite. Her voice alone created a true, believable character.
