Beasts of No Nation – Uzodinma Iweala
In Beasts of No Nation, the main character Agu, Haunted by his father’s own death at the hands of militants, is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started—a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact.
In a powerful, strikingly original voice that vividly captures Agu’s youth and confusion, has produced a harrowing, inventive, and deeply affecting novel. Beasts of No Nation is a raw, compelling first novel
