“Get it, then get another copy for someone you know because you are definitely going to want to talk about it once you read that heart-stopping last page.” — Oprah Winfrey (Oprah’s Book Club 2016 Selection)
… A book that resonates with deep emotional timbre. The Underground Railroad reanimates the slave narrative, disrupts our settled sense of the past and stretches the ligaments of history right into our own era … The canon of essential novels about America’s peculiar institution just grew by one.” — Ron Charles, Washington Post
… The Underground Railroad is an American masterpiece, as much a searing document of a cruel history as a uniquely brilliant work of fiction.” — Michael Schaub, NPR
