‘Homegoing’ Comes Full Circle

Gaby and Adam finished their 5th book in the Bookstr Podcast series. Of all the books they have read so far Gaby said that Homegoing  has been the best one yet. The trip through time with Yaa Gyasa is certainly an epic and important tale considering the issues surrounding race in America today.

Spoiler ahead! Adam pointed out that he disliked the loose structure of the book until he got to the very end. The final scene where Marcus is given Esi’s black stone necklace, signifying his return home, brought the whole text together for him. Overall the book is an epic tale of how slavery affected the lives of African Americans and Africans alike. Check in with them next week to find out which book they will be reading next!
