    READER Ñ DOC The Underground Railroad ↠ Hardcover FREE The Underground RailroadThis is my first read by Colson Whitehead and it makes me think his style may not be to my tastesIt's personal preference I'm sure There are some beautiful sentences some genius structural choices and many great ideas Indeed the re imagining of history where the Underground Railroad is an actual railroad is a great idea in itself I just found it lacking in emotion It's a cold distant impersonal novel and it didn't pull me inAll of the secondary characters are undeveloped and forgettable but than this Cora herself wasn't given enough personality and development to really drag me into her world The other central character Caesar is even less developed Perhaps a first person narrative would have better suited the subject matter and helped warm us to the charactersIn this story C

    READER Ñ DOC The Underground Railroad ↠ Hardcover FREE The Underground RailroadExcellent writing strong concept I am personally burnt out on slavery narratives so I cannot say this was a pleasure to read So much unrelenting horror Whitehead does an excellent job of portraying slavery and America as a slave nation The idea of the underground railroad as an actual railroad is so smart and interesting I wish he had actually done with the railroad itself There were some sentences where I thought Now you are just showing off The amount of research the author did is clear throughout There is some really interesting structural work at play I wanted some of the secondary characters to be fully developed This b
