The Color Purple
By: Isabel, Destanie, Crystal, and Olyvia
Isabel- I thought it was an okay book. The way the characters talked made it confusing. Overall I wouldn't read the book again 3/5
Crystal- I would give this book a 4/5. I thought it was very interesting and had my attention at the beginning, but towards the end I lost interest. It was also confusing with the dialect.
Olyvia- I give this book a 4/5. This book had a great story line and was very captivating towards the beginning. It became a little more dull towards the end of the book. However overall, was a really good book!
