The Underground Railroad (Oprah's Book Club): A Novel - Colson Whitehead

I'm not getting very far in this book because it is so sad.  I'm just not in the mood for sad right now and every little detail in this book is so sad.  I did like this quote though.  


There are instruments and human players but sometimes a fiddle or a drum makes instruments of those who play them, and all are put in servitude to the song.
