One of the best books of 2016, this Colson Whitehead book has won multiple awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. We dive into the story as the slavery rages in the US and the protagonist, young African girl suffers in captivity. She finds associates and flees through the Underground Railroad, but the hunt follows her steps.


Maybe they just have a different ideal of what a good book is.

I mean, so many books come out every year, and people tend to stick to specific genres, so it makes sense :) I had only heard of a few myself. But now I have some interesting new stuff to read!

Man, I’ve never even heard of any of these books (even looking at the full list of 10) and only two of the writers. Clearly I am not up-to-date on recent good books.
