    1. Gone. Parents, teen siblings and friends, grandparents. They are all gone, and you have no idea if they are coming back or where they went. All you know is this purple storm showed up out of nowhere and they disappeared! No more bed times, no groundings, no parents harping on you to do your homework or get a job, but also no one to tuck you in at night, clean up for you. Purple is a brilliantly written tale of just that, family members and strangers gone missing and the story of four unlikely te [...]

    2. 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 an [...]

    3. It took me a while to get around to reading Purple but here I am. :) I have to admit that third person novels aren’t my favourite to read; I feel disconnected from the story and struggle to understand the characters but Purple didn’t present those problems to me. I knew who the characters were, what they looked like, how they thought and what they knew – I felt as involved in the story as they were. Imagine having no Mum to be nagged by, or Dad to be shouted at, no siblings to row with. It [...]

    4. Everyone aged 16 - 65 has vanished in a purple storm. The story starts 6 months after the catastrophic event, and we get to view this new reality through the eyes of fifteen-year old Ellie, who is living alone in London. Thanks to a series of bizarre coincidences Ellie meets a collection of fantastically written teenagers and pensioners (Marty, Pearl and Opal were my favourites). Although the storm has affected all of Planet Earth, the vast majority of the story unfolds in London. There are lots [...]

    5. I enjoyed reading PURPLE. It took me a while to figure out what was happening. Imagine a Purple cloud storm that removes everyone aged 18-65. Hmmm, no one to nag you, or tell you to clean your room. No one to tuck you in at night, or make chicken soup for you when you're feeling badly.We traverse this world (mainly in London) 6 months after the storm. We see things through Ellie's eyes. Ellie is just 15 years old, but forced through these bizarre circumstances to act more like a grown up. All th [...]

    6. From my Editor's choice blog:Nowadays, it's not often I get so sucked into a book that I take hours off work to finish it, but that's exactly what happened when I fell into this fabulous story that spans all ages. Readers to date have been reaching for the superlatives when reviewing this enchanting parable. There is so much to like about this post-traumatic society that author, Graham J. Sharpe has conjured up, but I'm not going to spoil the plot by disclosing the whole synopsis.No need; with P [...]

    7. I just finished this book, and I am doing a Flaming Knicker Dances, 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 t [...]

    8. Several of the characters were cool, the opening premise was promising and the reviews were very strongbut 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 t [...]

    9. A great new author who manages to combine a futuristic setting with current spiritual themes such as predetermination and the law of attraction. In parts the novel reads like a children's book for adults and in others it illustrates how such laws and theories can be translated in to real life, in an entertaining and not merely instructive way. A very important work of art.

    10. I absolutely LOVED Purple so far, especially the way that Graham describes the characters. It's a fun read. :)

    11. Loved loved loved it! (I'll say it thrice for added emphasis :P)Where do I start? Well Graham Sharpe is better at writing from a teens point of a view than Jo Rowling (I know that's a big claim but read it and see). The thoughts of the characters come so naturally and all the little insecurities of adolescence are accurately portrayed in there.I found the topic of the book fascinating; it was original and interesting. I found a lot of the writing pretty inspiring and there are some thought-provo [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.This YA Fantasy book was an unexpected delight to read! I really enjoyed it.There are four main characters, Ellie, Midge, Scott and Marty. I liked them all very much. Ellie is a very level headed young lady. Midge came across as a bit of a clumsy clots, but I found her bumbling quite endearing. Scott is an enterprising young man, with a good head for business. And Marty is a fine young man who has flashes of inspiratio [...]

    13. I love this book! The story line takes unexpected paths and kept me hooked! The characters felt like people I could know. They were quirky and fun, very original and had real problems that didn't always have solutions. Their unique journeys all come together to tell a story of awakening and reaching outside of ones-self. I love how the characters are compelled to look past the expectations they have of others and discover what's really there. The setting was so creative and impossible, but the w [...]

    14. 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.

    15. I really enjoyed reading this book, very engaging and kept me going to the end, which is a rarity I'll admit. Full of remarkable characters and love with way the author feeds spirituality into his narrative. Must read again

    16. Very unusual but. Bit of a rushed ending. Lots of references to purple and nothing much more concrete
