Sinossi

PURPLE by Graham J. Sharpe

WINNER of the 2013 PURPLE DRAGONFLY BOOK AWARDS (Young Adult Category)

The 2013 PURPLE DRAGONFLY BOOK AWARDS also placed it SECOND in the Science Fiction/Fantasy Category and SECOND-TIE in the Spiritual/Religious Category

QUARTER-FINALIST in the 2013 AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL AWARD (Young Adult Category)

FINALIST in the 2012 KINDLE BOOK REVIEW BEST INDIE BOOKS 2012 (Young Adult Category)

Purple is a fantasy novel set in modern day London. Originally intended as young adult fiction it’s now receiving reviews from readers of all ages. With a cast of quirky characters and plenty of sharp dialogue this paranormal mystery beautifully combines the supernatural with a touch of humour to create an inspirational adventure with a spiritual message.

"Sharpe’s debut novel applies a fresh fantasy premise to a classic coming-of-age tale. This book's great strength is its keen insight into the nature of human fear, hope and love. Clever and affecting in a vividly imagined world." Kirkus Reviews

“A rare discovery - a book for all ages. It's not often that a story resonates and captivates in such a satisfying manner.” Stef Mcdaid - editor in chief @WriteIntoPrint

After a purple storm sweeps around Planet Earth, stealing millions of people, four teenagers struggle to make it alone in London. Drawn together by a series of bizarre coincidences, Ellie, Midge, Scott and Marty soon find themselves entangled with a bunch of interfering pensioners. Among the cast of players are flamboyant hairdresser Mr Rupert, Pearl the loud-mouthed tea lady, and June, a psychic, who travels the world on her motorbike. As the tranquillizing effects of the Purple diminish, greed and the lust for power take hold. Penny Treasure, leader of the Decision Makers Council, dreams up an idea that could destroy the world forever. In a desperate hunt to find the missing, clues are pieced together and some shocking secrets come tumbling out of the closet.

L'autore

At the age of twelve Graham regularly danced around the lounge to Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights. Now forty-eight, he still hasn't decided what he'll do when he grows up. So far, he's worked in an ice cream shop, trained as a hairdresser, studied sociology and psychology, written for and performed with a touring theatre company, and backpacked across far-flung countries with loose change in his pocket. Graham now combines travelling with writing and he completed his first novel 'Purple' during the sleepless, jet-lagged hours spent in hotel rooms around the world.

5.0 su 5 stelle OMG I haven't enjoyed a book as much as this for a long time, 22 giugno 2013
Di Precious Murphy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
From the first few pages of this book I was hooked. I had absolutely no idea what journey I was going to be taken on and I had no idea that I was going to smile as much as I did. Purple really made me think about the smaller things in life and how important these small things are in making something really big, like being a decent human being. This book is funny, warm and cheeky. I absolutely loved the authors style of writing, his sense of humor and the characters.

I have read some books by Paolo Coelho and love the messages inside. Purple did the same to me. Although the characters in this book are teenagers, this book is for everyone, the message is great and the story is beautiful. If this is the first novel by Mr Graham, then I am really looking forward to see what he comes up with next.

I would love to see this story on the big screen, it has Tim Burton written all over it.
4.0 su 5 stelle Post apocalyptic is fantastic. 27 marzo 2014

A friend recommended this to me. It took me forever to get started on it. Once I did however, I could not put it down.
You know how people gets on a bandwagon like with Vamps etc. and ride the train until it runs no more.
So when I started on this book I went. Ok cool, I am not read out on any post apocalyptic reads, so this should be fun.

What a shock when while reading I discovered that this story is totally unique.
Some of the basis conforms to normal pa plot lines. Most of it is fresh, new and even inspiring.
I loved this. Get your copy today.

2.0 su 5 stelle Big Disappointment 11 aprile 2013
Di Dick Whittington - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Several of the characters were cool, the opening premise sounded promising and the reviews were very strong...but overall, this book was a big disappointment and the ending left me feeling duped and deceived. I feel like I wasted my time with this book and would not recommend it to anyone. Wanted to stop several times, but convinced myself that something good was going to happen or the reviews/ratings would not be so positive. Nothing good happened and I certainly do not understand all the praise for this read.

5.0 su 5 stelle Love Sometimes Wears a Disguise 22 marzo 2012
Di L. Dunn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I just finished this book, and I am doing a Flaming Knicker Dance...yes, it's a Happy Flaming Knicker Dance, but only because I'm so excited to tell everyone I know to read this book!

For years I've seen rows and rows of hokey books promising to be a parable for the ages, and they leave you shaking your head and mad at yourself for wasting money on contrived rubbish.

Love sometimes wears a disguise, and Purple is a brilliant book showing the way to love by following the signs. The signs were obvious to me, and I'm sure that for each one it will be personal.

Even if you don't care to find love and make the world a better place, the story is brilliant. It honestly had to have come from the mind of a wise man who has experience to share. Thank goodness he did.

All you need is love-John Lennon
Love sometimes wears a disguise-Graham Sharpe

Since reading this book, I have been more aware of being in tune with signs and signals that are given to all of us. I truly believe that this book is meant to be read by everyone.
3.0 su 5 stelle A Strange But Imaginative Book 3 febbraio 2013
Di Jessica M. Bush - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
As I started this book, I wondered if the author dropped acid. But, as I got into the story I discovered that although it would be a strange trip, it was an imaginative one with a rather wonderful message for all of us about life and death. It's quirky and whimsical; certainly an enjoyable read and definitely original. I liked it but I don't think it was 5 stars as it didn't WOW me or leave me wanting to read it again.
