Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, read 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.

    Loved this book and the narrators soothing voice. So much happens with so many different people that if you’re distracted for a few seconds you have to rewind it because you be missed something you need to know. A good story as well as being very educational to the disturbing past of the history of slavery to the ghettos of today. Things i already knew were confirmed, so heartbreakingly sad. Recommend this book

  • Valentina R.

    started well and a fascinating story, but then it's such a long sequence of characters coming in over and over, i eventually couldn't follow it anymore. i just dropped it 8hrs in. maybe if one can stick to it it all wraps up nicely

    What a fantastic piece of litersture. This book takes you on a journey you won‘t regret. The narrator should have been an Ashanti because his butchering of Ashanti names and words was cringe-inducing. He however did have a pleasant sounding voice.

    On my top three so far! And well choreographed! The write keeps the story line smoothly going despite shifting chapters between two different continents and a lot different time periods.
