Would you listen to Homegoing again? Why?
Yes. It was a fantastic , well thought out and well narrated novel. I felt like I was being read a history lesson on many levels containing both personal and national events. So well written and narrated. A fantastic well executed idea. Made me want to research my history further and take my children to Ghana.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Homegoing?
Without spoiling the book I thought the ending was perfect. Not expected but the only way it could have ended.
Have you listened to any of Dominic Hoffman’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No. First but thought he was brilliant and handled most accents with ease.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes. The book made me smile and cry.
Any additional comments?
I'm sure this book will become a classic and can't wait for more from the author.

This novel is a beautifully crafted piece of artwork. A colourful tapestry, encompassing the history of seven generations of two strains of the same family. Each of the 14 chapters tells the story of one member of each generation. The characters are wonderfully rounded even though we only know them for a fairly short time. When we return to the next generation however. We do hear a little more of the previous generation, I. E. The parents of the character in question. The two different branches of the family separate but are finally reunited. I cannot say any more than this without giving it away. I did wonder about the title, and this only became evident at the very end of the book. The theme is slavery down the ages and it's after-effects throughout the generations until the present day. It is heartwarming in parts, tragic in others. A very vibrant story! This is certainly one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. I would highly recommend it.

Excellent narrator,- a story that's hard to stop listening to , unforgettable characters that take you back in time
This story was all over the place! Confusing and disjointed. Constantly jumping from one story to another.
