If you are a lover of literature, and you’ve not yet read HOMEGOING, then I suggest you grab yourself a copy as soon as possible. This one will keep you awake. It is sad but thrilling. It will touch you heart. It will teach you.
The book is overwhelmingly beautiful. Well, I don’t really know how the author Yaa Gyasi does it, it is heard to explain. But it is beautiful. So I have not been reading much literature these days, but this book has got me on my toes. Certainly one of my best.
The book covers a series of stories about two sisters “Effia and Esi, with two different destinies. One is sold into slavery; one is a slaver trader’s wife. The consequences of their fates reverberate through the generations that follow”
What constantly surprises me is the fact that you don’t have to necessarily read the book in order. Any chapter you open will give you an ultimate experience. Well, who knows what your thoughts on it will be. Better you Grab your copy and share the experience.
