Review of Purple Hibiscus Novel

Reading redemption stories is an emotional roller coaster for me. The Purple Hibiscus is one of the best as a Redemption novel out there in the market with a modern plot. I read it and spoiler alert. I enjoyed reading The Purple Hibiscus.

The thing I love most about Purple Hibiscus is the modern settings of the plot. The main character Kimble is a very shy fifteen-year-old girl who is stuck under her father’s autocratic rules. To her father, Jaja is perfect as he is a boy.

The story is smooth and flawless. There is always a war fought in the household of Kambili, between her mother, brother, and father.

The novel is exceptionally engaging and will give you an enjoyable emotional journey with some humor and life-changing messages.

This book, The Purple Hibiscus is recommended for every young adult to shape his life into a better one.
