I don't know how Colson Whitehead came up with this, but every word, every line in this novel, is pitch-perfect. I can't imagine this book being any other way, and it seems like Mr. Whitehead must have put a monumental effort towards writing this piece. I enjoyed reading it immensely, and I can't wait to pick up copies of his other two books. He almost reminds me of Toni Morrison, in the way that he presents moral issues through fantastic diction and great focus. This is an amazing effort from an amazing young author, and I sincerely hope he keeps up the good work.
