I admit I discovered this book because of the current pandemic situation we’re living in and while there are some eerie parallels in Colson whitehead’s zone one to COVID-19, this book is much bigger than that. Whitehead uses this dystopian environment to refocus on how we view everyday activities when it’s taken away from us. There are periods of dark humor but also great moments for reflection. One of the biggest enjoyment in reading this book for me was Whitehead's poetic use of language. He is a true master of vocabulary and poetic images. A fascinating and enjoyable read that is hard to put down.
