    Description

    Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, narrated by Dominic Hoffman. 

    Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery, one a slave trader's wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow. 

    Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi, from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel - the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and, through their lives, the very story of America itself. Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portraits, Homegoing is a searing and profound debut from a masterly new writer. 

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

    The narrator didn't do the story justice

    He didn't bring the story alive. I opted to buy the book and read it and my, it's a great read.

    loved it!

    this book is amazing! I'm happy I decided to listen to it and not read it because the narration was so well done. The stories told were heart breaking and the writing beautiful. I'd recommend it to any adult I'll see!

    Feminist reading and trusting your audience

    I thought it was a lovely concept, whose execution is far better when read aloud. In terms of story there were a couple of issues:

    Firstly, the author at times, particularly towards the end, spells out the purpose of the story, and makes the symbolism too obvious. I wish the author trusted her readers more and allowed us so piece it together.

    Secondly, I wish her female protagonists were less conventional and that her interpretation of them was more feminist. Most of their concerns are finding men or with children, something that is a little tired.

    However, ultimately it was a lovely read.

    Incredible!

    Yaa Gyasi is an incredibly gifted writer and I am so glad that I listened to this book recommended by a dear friend. I’m in awe of how skilfully she handled the difficult subject of slavery and the fullness of the characters she brought forth - I felt as though I knew them, could relate to them and their history by the end of the book.

    Amazing

    This was such a beautiful as well as a difficult read.
    Yaa Gyasi is an amazing author. I will remember this book forever. Dominic Hoffman’s performance was incredible.

    A Synthesis

    "Homegoing" by Yaa Gyasi is a bit of a let down from an intentive and imaginative author. Well written but terribly narrated. Not as strong as "Washington Black", or different and breathtaking as "Transcendence". Rather, "Homegoing" reads like a synthesis of both books;  starting with Slavery, now set in Cape Coast Castle, going to America where a daughter of Ghanaian parents, and a young man of Ghanaian heritage are brought together by mysterious forces, and return to Ghana together, to come to terms with blessings and challenges of their lineage.

    This book gave me purpose

    I loved every bit of Yaa's book. As a reader from Kenya, I identified with my history in ways I have never felt before..

    One of my favorites. Well researched and written! Highly recommend it. Gives an insight to the beginning of slave trade. Eye opening.

    Unglaublich

    Unglaublich gutes Buch. Die Geschichte zeigt, den Verlauf der Zeit und der Menschen and it comes full circle at the end. Sehr gutes Buch, um sich vor Augen zu führen, dass es zu der Zeit der Versklavung Individuen waren- Menschen, die dem Leben und der Familie entrissen wurden. Wenn man als weißer Mensch über die Geschichte der Sklaverei lernt, lernt man das in Zahlen und nicht in Familiengeschichten. Dieses Buch bringt einem die Geschichten der Familien nahe. Sehr rührend.

    I really tried but I simply could not get into it

    I really wanted to like this book but somehow I never was able to get into the different stories - and then it ended.
    Nothing ever drew me in and only my personal mission to finish what I start compelled me to finish this book.

    Amazing

    This was more of a homecoming for myself. I have enjoyed every bit of it. It amazingly capture this lost something we all from the diaspora have felt at one point in our lives.
