#1 — Underground Airlines

Underground Airlines by Ben Winter
Rating: 4/5
  • Speculative fiction based on the premise that the civil war did not occur and that slavery still exists as an institution in the United States
  • Although designed to read like a thriller, the parallels made between the real world and the theoretical one gives this book depth
  • A risky move for a white writer to have a black protagonist narrate in the first person
