5.0 out of 5 stars Science. Religion, depression, addiction
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 26, 2021
With short punchy chapters, Yaa Gyasi writes about with depression, addiction, science and religion through the story of a young lady and her family.

The protagonist, Gifty, is a very lovable character, inquisitive, brilliant and ambitious. We see her grow from asking her fourth grade teacher ‘’Can you die from sleeping?’’ to studying neuroscience, at Stanford School of Medicine.

Her relationship with her family, colleagues and God are explored and so is her deep interest in mice. Using mice, she studies the neuro circuits of addiction.

Parts of this book made me cry but it is such an important and enjoyable book, I don’t believe it was on my shelf for months before I read it.

Yaa Gyasi did an excellent job with this book.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 5, 2021
Yaa Gyasi's 'Transcendent Kingdom' creatively explores the dynamism of faith and mental health amongst 1st/2nd gen immigrants while somehow walking you through a Post-Doc Stanford
Neuroscience thesis in a coherent way?! It ticked every box for me - can't recommend it enough!
