The Color Purple - Alice Walker

"You got to fight. You got to fight."
But I don't know how to fight. All I know how to do is stay alive.
Page 17

Will I ever be able to tell you all?
I dare not ask, I know. But leave it all to God.

It's hot, here, Celie, she write. Hotter than July. Hotter than August and July. Hot like cooking dinner on a big stove in a little kitchen in August and July. Hot.

I like the quotes, especially the first one :)
Would you recommend it?

That's a tough question. It was a very interesting read, like you get to learn a lot about history and such. It's definitely different, though quite intense and disturbing at times.
Check what it's about, and if you're remotely interested I recommend it. :)
