Elements. It’s rare for me to rate a debut novel with the highest rating. Yaa Gyasi earned each of five stars with her novel titled, Homegoing. I can be satisfied with fiction that tells one story well. Gyasi tells the stories of multiple characters across generations. For each setting and character, her lyrical language draws us into vivid settings, and her insight into human behavior offers readers highly developed and complex characters. She tells each of those stories with great skill, using elements of fire, water and dreams to create a compact novel full of fine writing. Readers who enjoy finely written prose with interesting characters are those most likely to enjoy this novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Homegoing from
