    Colson Whitehead's Underground Railroad. A departure to my last two reads: Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance and We Should All be Feminists, by Chiamanda Adiche.

    What'd you think? The Intuitionist(?) was amazing, but I felt his 'literary' zombie novel was tedious and unnecessary, a pointed grab for crossover cash, or something he was too self-conscious or embarrassed about to fully dig-in in to any kind of fun or inspiring way. (Contrast with Benjamin Percy, who does the 'literary' genre novel well).

    I still have high hopes for Underground Railroad.

    I'm about 2/3 through it. Will finish it before the weekend's out, but to this point, I like the care he puts into the character development. It fiddles with a few historical "what ifs" one or two that seem plausible. I'll check back when I'm done.
