If ever there was a book I would have loved reading in a group or book club-type setting, this would be it. I felt like taking notes throughout the whole thing. I wanted to express my thoughts after certain chapters, and listen to other reactions, too. It has the depth to warrant this. I have come across several references to it as "a sequel to The Color Purple," but find that misleading. Some of the characters are the children or other family members of the main characters in TCP, but there is no pick up of that story at all. If you're looking for that, you'll be disappointed.

These people are living their own lives, finding their own way through their own adventures and circumstances. Beautiful prose, as I would expect from Ms. Walker, some of it magical and even surreal. It's dense, to be sure. Some of the characters grow long-winded, and in certain instances I agree with the comments that the monologue style of the book can be challenging - but in other instances, it's perfect.

I regret I had to read it alone, with no discussion or feedback. This is a fine novel, and Alice Walker is a genius. I'd give it 5 stars but for the certain long-winded sections. I wish I had placed sticky-flags while reading it, because parts I'd like to re-visit are hard to find. ( )

between 1 and 1.5 because i really want to like this and because i like (so much!) her point and what she's doing, i just really don't like the way she executed it. 97% of this book is written in monologue - the chapter starts with someone talking, the indicator ("_____ said") so you know which story we're hearing, and then the rest of the chapter is them monologuing, usually without even a sentence of interruption for exposition or dialogue exchange. then the next chapter is someone else talking but doing the same thing. this is one of my very least favorite ways for books to be written. i find it tedious and a hard slog, no matter if the story they're telling is a good one or not. i absolutely hate this kind of writing.

her book the color purple is one of my all-time favorite books but i also wonder if we shouldn't leave those characters to that book. she keeps coming back to them, and while i smile to hear more about their stories, i think i'd prefer to keep their lives contained in that masterpiece. (what she has to say in these books can be said without those characters, and might be better stated with new ones that don't have the history they do. or maybe not. maybe i missed so much of this book because this kind of writing is so hard for me to give focus to.)

"One night she said: 'If it is true that we commit adultery by thinking it, then is it also the same with committing murder? What about the way it is so easy, when you watch a plane take off, to imagine it blown to bits? Does this count? Are we collectively responsible for disasters because we image them and therefore shape them into consciousness? Do all human beings nowadays automatically have murder in their eyes?'" ( )

Wonderful but confusing. Tracks various lives interweaving past and present --in Africa, Central America, US--some in touch with Spirit, some struggling and learning to come to terms with their family, but not in a didactic way.

Part love story, part fable, part feminist manifesto, part political statement, Walker's novel follows a cast of interrelated characters, most of them black. and each It is a sequel to "The Color Purple"
  brendanus | Oct 19, 2018 |
A meandering discourse on personal discovery, past lives, race, interpersonal relationships, all framed in a narrative that is unpredictable and hard to follow. The character development was quite well done but the overall effect is preachy. Not at al my sort of thing. ( )
