    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    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.
