Review: The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can't give this less that five stars. It was a wonderfully written account of a slave, Cora, who along with another slave, Caesar, tries to escape captivity. She is the daughter of a slave who was the only one known to escape through the swamps. Cora was challenged at every turn with everything and anything that could be thrown at her including slavecatchers that you would not want to meet up with at any time.

On the one hand it was a fantastic read, but on the other hand it was hard to read about how badly human beings have treated others and are still doing this today.

Excellent read.
