  • Missed opportunity

    I had high hopes for this one but it was just OK. Underground Airlines is set in a world where the Civil War never took place. Slavery was eventually abolished except for four southern states, known as The Hard Four. The Underground Airlines works to smuggle slaves out of the Hard Four. The main character, Victor, is a runaway slave who works for the US Marshals Service tracking down runaway slaves. The story centers on him tracking down a slave named Jackdaw who has escaped bondage via the Underground Airlines. Vicior begins to sense something is amiss and thus is really what the story is about. It becomes primarily a government conspiracy mystery novel and this alternate version of the USA and the underground airlines become a backdrop as the mystery is solved. This is what disappointed me most about the novel. The primary characters are mostly OK. There are moments in the story where you really felt for Victor because it was clear even as a free man, he was still at the mercy of white men. The level of anguish, despair, anger and desperation that accompanies this subject matter was not touched upon nearly enough. It felt like a missed opportunity.

    Thanks for your feedback!
