Gyasi is a skilled and beautiful writer. Her work feels deeply personal, and her narrative style is easy to immerse yourself in. Transcendent Kingdom examines the intersection faith and science, and how they play out in terms of mental health and addiction. It's a difficult subject matter, and the book took me longer to read than I imagined it would b/c of that. I would say that I preferred Gyasi's debut novel, and I don't think Kingdom lives up to that, but definitely still worth your time.
