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.

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.
