    Homegoing Kindle Ø Audiobook homegoing book, Homegoing EpubHomegoing is a very confident debut novel Exceptionally engaging and the strongest case for reparations and black rage I've read in a long time Seriously white men are the devil The most interesting part of this novel the structure also becomes the most frustrating part of the novel The story starts with two sisters who are never allowed to know each other and what becomes of the generations they beget starting in 18th century Ghana The novel beautifully explores the slave trade and imagines life in Ghana at that time and as we move forward through time from one generation to the next we see what slavery becomes in the US and how it changes Ghana The early chapters are rich and immersive and I could not put the book down I am impressed by the magnitude of

    Homegoing Kindle Ø Audiobook homegoing book, Homegoing EpubYaa Gyasi’s Homegoing is an ambitious and powerful novel which follows the descendants of two half sisters in Ghana some of the descendants stay in Ghana and some are shipped to America as slaves In one way the chapters of this novel which follow descendants of the two sisters and span roughly 250 years read like short stories because they introduce a totally new character in a new locale However these chapters bleed into each other and the emotional power of the accumulated stories the lives led by the descendants continues to build as we approach the present Besides the tragic stories of those who grew up in slavery or slavery’s aftermath in the United States it’s also fascinating to read the stories of those who stayed in Ghana They d
