Summary

Agu is just a boy when war arrives at his village. His mother and sister are rescued by the UN while he and his father remain to fight the rebels. 'Run!' shouts his father when the rebels arrive. And Agu does run. Straight into the rebels' path.
In a vivid, sparkling voice, Agu tells the story of what happens to him next - his life as a child soldier. His story is shocking and painful and completely unforgettable. Beasts of No Nation gives us an extraordinary portrait of the chaos and violence of war.

I had a mother once and she loved me

I hated this book until the last chapter which hit me in the stomach and took my breathe away. Its a hard read, tough, uncompromising and ugly; as it should be. This is a difficult subject and one that I was not comfortable looking so closely at. Many times I almost gave up but I am glad I didn't. Its one of those books that stay to haunt you long after you pull out the headphones and move on with your life

well read

Audio version is great for those unfamiliar with the lilt of West African English which lends authenticity to the voice of the young boy Agu the narrator who is cast adrift from family and everything he knows and looses his childhood to the horrors of war as a boy soldier
