    I just finished "The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead. I thought it was very good except for the author's decision to make the railroad a literal underground railroad, complete with tracks & carriages & stations. The rest of the book was so *real*, brutally so, & this just seemed...a bit fanciful. I see it won the Pulitzer, though, so clearly I'm wrong, lol.
    It's surprising the subject isn't written about more often, really. It seems to me such a supreme act of bravery on the part of everyone involved, both the slaves leaving everything they know (no matter how awful) & risking a terrible death for the chance of freedom & also those who helped them on their way who risked arrest, violence & ostracism. It's a fascinating if disturbing topic.

    Resurrecting this thread...

    I'm reading The Lying Game by Ruth Ware. It is the only one of her books that I have not read. This books starts out slow, much like her others. It starts to pick up in pace by page 100, as sinister things begin to happen. If you like mysteries with a creepy feel, Ruth Ware is a good choice.
