The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Just finished this book and would like to know what others think. Here is a brief summary:

"This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today’s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen."rou

It is about slavery and the underground. I will withhold my opinions and critique until I hear from others.

Re: The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Obviously, I'm the worst at coming back to review those pesky RTC placeholders, but I felt the need to say a few words regarding this one. Even though I can't remember any specific quotes this far removed, I will always remember how moving the narrative is, how engaging the writing was, and how necessary, important, and timely this story will continue to be. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up!

BookTalk discussed Coates' book We Were Eight Years in Power see link below. I would like to read The Water Dancer as he is a very powerful writer.
