#14 — The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Rating: 4/5
  • The story revolves around Cora, a slave from Georgia whose own mother successfully escaped when Cora was young. She leaves with Caesar, a fellow slave who befriended someone connected to the underground railroad
  • Each stop on the railroad was almost its own self-contained story. Each place had varying characters and different outlooks/philosophies on slavery
  • While informative and educational, it was very depressing for obvious reasons
